Bristol & Weston NHS Purchasing Consortium

As Bristol & Weston NHS Purchasing Consortium we provide a comprehensive range of purchasing services to support local Trusts and Healthcare Providers.

We are NHS employees hosted by North Bristol NHS Trust and our services include all aspects of clinical and non-clinical purchasing, supply chain management and capital equipping (CES) and our system tools include e-tendering, reporting, spend analysis and order management.

Current clients include:

  • North Bristol NHS Trust
  • University Hospitals Bristol and Weston NHS Foundation Trust

Close working relationships with these Trusts and Providers and also collaboration with other organisations brings economies of scale, sharing of data and best practice so that we maximise savings and efficiencies. We work closely with each client to support compliance with all purchase-to-pay procedures and delivering improved efficiencies in all areas including automation, consolidation of invoices, strictly controlled access to purchasing systems and so on.
