We have this year celebrated 70 years of a great NHS and we are now set for a fabulous two-day conference at the Cardiff City Hall for our 58th year as HCSA delivering great networking opportunities for you, colleagues, members and suppliers. We have a great line up of speakers joining us aligned to some fabulous workshops allowing as much interaction and debate this year if even possible to challenge last years conference as it was the biggest and best conference to date. I hope we can build upon the great start last year and bring you even more as part of my second conference as Chief Officer of HCSA. I would like to set the bar even higher this year in bringing you what you should expect from HCSA in the future as we move forward with our newly acquired charitable status.  Last year I promised a more southern venue and this year we find ourselves in Cardiff, Wales celebrating 70 years and aligned to Nye Bevan the founder of the NHS.

Our challenge now is to grasp the opportunities before us to truly bring commercial ownership and accountability to our organisations under a common framework which we will build together; promote together and share together. NHS procurement will be NHS Procurement – Shaping the Future as we act together.

Come to Conference; have fun; work and play hard and take back some real value to help transform your organisations.

Alan Hoskins

Chief Officer HCSA
