London, UK 31st September, 2020 – Healthcare Communications, digital transformation partners to the NHS, as part of IMI mobile group, has been named as a supplier on Crown Commercial Services G-Cloud 12 framework for the fourth year running.
Crown Commercial Service (CCS) supports the public sector to achieve maximum commercial value when procuring common goods and services. In 2019/20, CCS helped the public sector to achieve commercial benefits worth over £1bn – supporting world-class public services that offer best value for taxpayers.
The CCS digital marketplace provides UK public sector organisations with a fast and compliant way to procure cloud-based technology that avoids lengthy tender processes. As the NHS faces unprecedented challenges with waiting lists, care delivery and staffing, the ability to quickly roll out solutions at scale and realise the benefits sooner is pivotal to the recovery of NHS services.
From 28th September, organisations can access Healthcare Communications’ full product portfolio of services from the G-cloud 12 framework. The solutions are already embedded within the public sector and proven to improve communications and deliver cost savings at each step of the patient journey.
The rapid mobilisation of cloud-based technology at the start of the pandemic has been vital in enabling patients to access care safely and protect staff from infection. This framework can continue to support organisations with accelerated adoption of transformative solutions at pace with demand, along with the confidence that these services have been qualified by the CCS.
Kenny Bloxham, Managing Director of Healthcare Communications comments: ‘as the NHS braces itself for the winter peak and continues to work through the appointment backlog , the ability to procure innovative solutions quickly, with the confidence that suppliers have met stringent government standards, is crucial to successfully managing this extra-ordinary activity.
The G-Cloud 12 Framework is one of the few that enables direct award, enabling public sector organisations to easily search through the cloud-based products and start working with the approved supplier in just a matter of days.’
