Central Supplies / Purchasing
The Central Supplies Department purchases and maintains stock materials for the day to day running of the hospital. Purchases of hospital equipment, patients’ aids & appliances and other special requirements; placing of purchase orders for medical equipment maintenance and hospital service contracts are also managed by Central Supplies.
The National Procurement Policy and HSE Policy provides a framework for operating within spend thresholds, using open competitive quotations. Cost savings are achieved through use of Hospital Procurement Services Group (HPSG) contracts and also through negotiating with national suppliers, particularly on printing, computer and printer consumables, cleaning materials, office equipment, therapy supplies and medical dressings.
The Central Supplies Department purchases and maintains a computerised materials stock control system for the day to day running of the hospital.
