PRO-CURE, the main NHS provider of commercial services across Oxfordshire, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, and Hampshire, has signed a two-year contract with TNT Post, which it expects will save some £300,000.
The deal covers a two day delivery service, for PRO-CURE and its two partners in the NHS Commercial Alliance: NHS Commercial Solutions and the East of England Collaborative Procurement Hub. The partnership has more than 70 member NHS trusts.
The savings were achieved through combining the volume of 19 trusts across the south and east of England – a total of seven million letters annually.
Lee Collins, managing director of PRO-CURE, said: “The NHS is under enormous pressure to make efficiency savings and we are really pleased that with TNT Post we have secured cash savings on postal collection services at a time of escalating prices.”
