Next generation procurement and finance routes in Healthcare. Is it more than just Procure 22?

There are many design and construction frameworks available in the market – Procure 22 being one of the most well-known in Healthcare.  But what other ones are available and are the fit for purpose?
Come and join us as we discuss:
  • What frameworks are out there and how accessible are they?
  • What are the benefits and pitfalls?
  • How transparent are they?
  • Are they flexible enough to deal with changes in policy and legislation?
  • Does a lack of funding mean new approaches are required?
  • Is there private sector appetite?
  • How do you generate market interest?
