'A practical guide to forming and maintaining cross-sector partnerships in healthcare.'
Sodexo has been supporting the partnerships report series, which explores how providers from the private and third sector can best work with the NHS.
A reference panel of senior leaders convened in early 2012 to author the first report, which made the case for partnership working between sectors.
In 2013, the group met again to produce a practical guide, with tips for all sectors, on how to procure for and deliver partnership contracts.
The report looks at three phases of the partnership process: getting started, procurement and delivery.
Partnerships for healthy outcomes
'Modernising health sector procurement: making partnerships work between the public, private and third sectors.'
In 2012, as the health sector underwent the biggest structural changes in its 65-year history, the panel convened for the first time to discuss how all sectors must find better ways to work in partnership.
The report explores the case for partnership working, helps define partnership and highlights the things to consider when navigating the procurement labrynth.
To discuss the report, arrange an advisory board session with our panel or discuss how Sodexo can work in partnership with you please contact:
