We’re proud to be part of the Lancashire and South Cumbria Health and Care Partnership.

As a ground-breaking shared service, the Lancashire Procurement Cluster (LPC), has created a step change in procurement and supply chain maturity for our customers.

To support the partnership, we are working with University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Foundation Trust (UHMBFT) and Lancashire & South Cumbria NHS Foundation Trust (LSCFT) to continue to develop the role of procurement and supply chain across five areas and serve the 1.8 million people living in Lancashire and South Cumbria.
