Global end-to-end IT services company DXC Technology has been awarded a major contract by the Department of Health and Social Care for the new NHS Supply Chain.

The agreement will require DXC to play a key role in assisting the transformation of the NHS’s procurement and logistics division that will include the delivery of a newly enhanced operating model.

As outlined by the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) within its Procurement Transformation Programme (PTP), this model will be used by all NHS organisations, allowing the purchase of quality goods and consumables for patient care.

“We are delighted to have been selected (alongside our partner PWC) to enable the improvement of the new NHS Supply Chain service,” said Damien Ventakasamy, Industry General Manager of UK, Ireland, Israel, Middle East and Africa., DXC Technoloy. “Our shared goal is to provide smarter, more effective IT to underpin the transformation of the buying experience of NHS organisations to support delivering patient care.”

“As we look to increase patient care while balancing the challenges of an ageing population and growing cost burdens on the NHS, IT will be an essential enabling service to help us achieve our aim of delivering significant savings for NHS organisations for reinvestment back into NHS frontline care,” said Jin Sahota, acting CEO of the DHSC.

DXC will now look to meet the demands of the contract, with a view to delivering the new operating model in early 2019.
