10.00am: The Provider Selection Regime – what will it mean for you?
Andrew Daly, partner and head of procurement at Hempsons, will provide a briefing session on what the Provider Selection Regime (PSR) will mean for you when procuring health care services. Hempsons has been advising NHS England on the development and introduction of the PSR and this session will provide you with an explanation of the new law, and how it is likely to work in practice.
The changes will require relevant authorities (NHS England, ICBs, Trusts and Foundation Trusts, as well as local authorities/combined authorities) to operate under a new bespoke procurement/commissioning regime when awarding contracts for health care services caught by the new regime. The session will explore the key changes and practical issues to consider when procuring health care services.
Between 11.30am - 12 noon
If you have any questions, please stay on the teams call to have an informal chat with Andrew – he has kindly agreed to stay on until midday following the briefing.
