We're making future plans for a combined NHS Trust & West Midlands Virtual Hospital supply chain engagement day in spring / summer 2015 - showcasing all that is great about our supply chain.

We're looking for procurement professionals who maybe interested in taking part in the event by fielding some 1-2-1 meetings in our special buyers lounge. Are you interested? (That's all we need to know at this stage - you won't have to commit to anything as we'll simply put you on our list of interested parties and make sure you don't miss out.)

Sponsorship

In the meantime, would you be interested in putting your company's name or specialist products forward as a sponsor for the virtual hospital portal and getting your business in front of a valuable audience?

There's an opportunity to use this first-of-its-kind initiative as a shop window for your business, getting your ideas, products and expertise in front of key contacts, specifiers, procurement decision makers and stakeholders.

Your sponsorship amount will depend on the product or services your business supplies and the location of choice for your advertising banner - for example, in the external fabrics / hospital entrance and approach / foyer / patient suite / specialist ward / operating theatre, and so on.
