Sheffield Teaching Hospitals go with Virtualstock

Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust has chosen the Virtualstock platform to manage its procurement process.

Andrea Smith, director of procurement at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals said: “With the NHS procurement landscape changing significantly we needed to implement a truly innovative solution and Virtualstock was the obvious choice.

“Highlighted as an example of best practice by Lord Carter, the STH team were keen to adopt The Edge for Health platform. We are currently working with our suppliers to ensure the product catalogue is enriched and price files authorised. That process will inevitably lead to more accurate orders and less invoice queries. It is also a great way for us to see the vast product ranges that historically we did not have room to store on our legacy system. A true marketplace for sourcing and product innovation.”
