We are set for a fabulous two-day conference in Harrogate for our 47th year of delivering the very best packages to our colleagues, members and suppliers. We have some outstanding speakers joining us and some fabulous workshops to allow as much interaction and debate as possible.  This will be my first conference as Chairman of HCSA and I would like to set the bar high in bringing you the start of what you can expect from HCSA in the future as we move forward with our newly acquired charitable status. Some may say it’s a long way from the South coast but rest assured it will be worth every mile you cover for some true northern hospitality and some great networking opportunities.

It’s time to step beyond our normal boundaries and safe places, grasp the opportunities 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 Stronger Together if 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

Chairman, HCSA
