DPS are pleased to welcome HPC - Healthcare Purchasing Consortium as a customer after their purchase of logixcentral.

Formed in 2001, the Healthcare Purchasing Consortium is the major NHS provider of purchasing, supply chain, healthcare contracting and commercial services across the West Midlands and North Central London.

The partnership works on behalf of more than 40 NHS Trusts who together spend £2.4 billion a year on goods and services. Our aim is to maximise their purchasing power, secure the best value for money and deliver savings and services that enhance patient care.

HPC is part of the NHS and is hosted by the University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire NHS Trust. The Consortium's primary responsibility is to substantially improve the performance of procurement across all stakeholder Trusts and deliver supply chain and commercial solutions.

All the savings that HPC make through negotiations with suppliers are passed back as cash releasing savings to the member Trusts. All our savings are auditable and there is regular communication between HPC and Directors of Finance to ensure that we are on target to acheive the savings required from us by each member Trust.
