The Hub’s Corporate team focuses on procurement support and providing local and regional market management. While we aim to utilise the region’s buying power to aggregate, collaborate and share whenever possible, the Corporate team also works on a number of bespoke projects, and have the resources to be flexible and responsive to customer needs. The offering includes a range of categories: Estates and Facilities, Corporate Services, Technology and Communication, and Managed Services.

Estates and Facilities

The Hub gives customers access to a large portfolio of Estates and Facilities frameworks and Dynamic Purchasing Systems.

Working closely with member Trusts, the Corporate team provide procurement expertise on numerous Estates and Facilities procurement projects, including Maintenance and Repair of Air Handling Units, CCTV Systems and Lifts, as well as the renewal of service contracts for Waste Management Services and Laundry and Linen Services.

Corporate Services

We offer access and support to a range of Corporate framework agreements, including Assurance, Governance, Language Services, Private and Overseas Patient Recovery Services and Analysis and Reconciliation, which saved our customers £2.2 million in F/Y 2017/18.

With the Commissioning Partner framework expiring at the end of 2018, we’re pleased to announce that it will be replaced with the Transforming Organisations, Partnerships and Systems (TOPS) framework, due to be available to members at the beginning of 2019.

This multi-speciality support and advisory consultancy services framework will assist members with their transformational aims for service delivery and partnership working.

Technology and Communications

The Corporate team are currently providing project and procurement support for member Trusts seeking an Electronic Document Records Managed Software and Services (EDRMS) solution and Multi-Functional Devices (MFD) contract.

Other frameworks included in this category are Digital Dictation, Inventory Management and Network Services.

Managed Services

The Hub has a variety of Corporate Services and Estates and Facilities Managed Services frameworks: Total Waste Management, Building and Engineering Services, Soft FM, Transport Services, HR Services and Payroll Services.

We are also working with members to understand the Clinical Managed Services market, routes to market and the various service requirements that Trusts may need to consider in this complex area.
