Complex process

The PCT engaged Business Evolution to support them develop a procurement process for a pharmacy support contract re-tender. Business Evolution was selected because of their track record in delivering projects on time, experience of working with a range of stakeholders and knowledge of NHS processes and commercial procurement.

Business Evolution developed a robust framework for the tender and a process that was transparent, inclusive and effective. We managed programme board meetings in conjunction with the senior pharmacy manager responsible for the project and adapted the programme as circumstances demanded.
