OUR RESPONSE TO COVID-19
As the Coronavirus outbreak develops, we want to reassure you that the wellbeing of our employees, members and communities is our top priority. We maintain our member-focus, but we have implemented a number of measures to keep our staff and members safe during this time.
Following Government guidelines in respect of the ongoing concerns about the COVID-19 virus, we have rearranged all meetings to be held remotely by via phone or via Microsoft Teams. It is very much ‘business as usual’ here at Consortium Procurement and we would like to emphasize our support and online communication methods that we can give during the current COVID-19 crisis. We have contacted all suppliers to ensure they have processes in place to manage the situation. Here at Consortium Procurement, we are fortunate to have the technology in place to be able to work flexibly and remotely. All of the Consortium Procurement staff are now working remotely at all times and are well equipped to do this.
Our member meetings
All member meetings scheduled to take place will be rearranged (if not already) to take place virtually or over the phone. If you have a meeting booked in with a member of our staff, please await further details as to how this will go ahead. You can also email that person directly or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Although we’re in uncertain times, we are committed to providing you with opportunities to come together online so we can collectively support each other during this period.
We have moved all of our upcoming roundtable sessions online and we are currently speaking to all registered attendees on bookings for their next event. We are still asking all of our attendees to book on to these sessions through the MyNHC portal and everything else will continue as normal. If you have any queries about the Procurement Roundtables, email Brittany.Shaw@consortiumprocurement.org.uk.
We know the months ahead are going to be challenging for people and businesses, but we will continue to support our members and do everything we can to continue providing outstanding services and delivering value for money.
- We have been liaising with all our supply partners over recent weeks to ensure we understand any potential disruption to services and will continue to monitor the situation & will give early notice to any members if they are likely to be affected.
- It’s business as usual, so we will still carry out all of our member meetings – we’ll just do it virtually! Your Account Executive will be in touch with you with details of how to join any upcoming meetings you have arranged.
Our primary concern is the health, safety and well-being of all of us here, our members and suppliers and our focus remains on delivering the great service you have come to expect from us. If you have any questions around this, please get in touch.
