Webex: GS1 Standards – helping the NHS save thousands of lives and millions of pounds

The Department of Health’s eProcurement strategy mandates that every NHS acute trust in England and all of their suppliers must become GS1 compliant.

“The introduction of GS1 standards will allow every NHS hospital to save an average of £3m each year, while improving patient care.” (Lord Carter’s review into hospital productivity)

NHS trusts across England are already adopting GS1 standards and this means the way you work with them is going to change.

This webex will give you an understanding of what GS1 standards mean in practice, the outcomes they enable – such as improved patient safety and better stock management – and how a little knowledge can go a long way towards nurturing your business relationships.

Guest speaker: Jane Hawkes
Head of Procurement and Supplies, Scan4Safety programme lead
North Tees and Hartlepool NHS Foundation Trust
