The NHS in England is working to reduce variation and waste in the use of clinical products, which requires collaboration between those directly involved in procurement and clinical staff. The procurement process is becoming centralised and standardised, and the involvement of, and consultation with, clinical staff is vital to avoid compromising patient care and safety.
This article reports the results of a survey of clinical staff and clinical procurement specialist nurses undertaken as part of a master’s degree. Its aim was to capture staff experiences and perceptions of changes to clinical products.
