We are delighted to announce that our Communication Service has been shortlisted as a finalist for the NHS in the North West Excellence in Supply Awards 2015. This is a significant achievement given the number of entries received, and we are very proud of the recognition this gives us.

The awards ceremony will take place on 22nd October, attended by a large number of suppliers, senior procurement professionals and leaders within the NHS, and this is where we will find out if we have won, so fingers crossed!
