This department aims to support our clinical colleagues by having the correct products and equipment available to enable them to deliver safe and effective care to patients, and we work with many different departments and staff in the organisation in order to do this.

The successful candidate will receive training to perform a variety of duties including contacting suppliers, placing orders for goods, purchasing products, updating procurement information and general office activity.
