How We Helped
Across 6 acute sites in the region expenditure on orthopaedic implants exceeds £10 million per annum. Much of this expenditure has been subjected to tendering processes but the regional management maintained a concern that the tenders had not achieved full leverage potential.
A Phillips Consulting specialist was engaged to conduct a detailed review of the implant expenditure, including detailed data and market analysis and supplier negotiation.
As a result of the analysis and negotiations completed by Phillips Consulting, cost reductions of up to 41% were identified on elective implants, generating an opportunity to save up to £1.3m per annum across the region.
