Best Value Procurement when Delivering Healthcare Projects
Time: 11:40 am - 12:00 pm
The C&M Sustainability Board was developed to create a forum for ICS, Health, Social Care and Voluntary Sectors to collectively develop a partnership approach to sustainability and innovation. The Board has around 100 members and provides opportunities to share good practice and encourage collaboration between organisations, so that we can improve as a system and ensure accountability and that the principles are being embedded across the Partnership.
• The sub-groups for the Board provide a platform to share examples of work taking place across the Partnership – and wider- to share learning so that we can capture best practice examples and set realistic priorities based on the existing work processes taking place.
• We pride ourselves on developing and maintaining a partnership approach with our local authority and voluntary sector colleagues, involving them with an aim to create and develop sustainable good practice across sectors. Through this approach, we collaboratively developed the Social Value Award. The award aims to help organisations to achieve their staff and volunteer recruitment and retention strategy, deliver Corporate Social Responsibility, Social Value and recognises organisations as an ‘Anchor Institution’.
• In line with the Greener NHS Programme and three-year strategy to net-zero, the Partnership and Trusts have been developing individual Green Plans which will feed into the overarching ICS Green Plan.
• This work has led the Partnership’s approach to ensuring sustainability is a part of all that we do, setting an expectation that sustainability and social value principles must be demonstrated across all Programmes, within all Places. We have established ambitions and priorities within our ICS Green Plan, which was developed collaboratively, including the ambition for all NHS trusts and the ICS to gain the Navajo Charter Mark – a signifier of good practice, commitment and knowledge of the specific needs, issues and barriers facing LGBTQIA+ people in Merseyside.
