Why you shouldn’t take ‘light touch’ procurement too lightly
Health commissioners should not be lulled into a false sense of security around procurement by the title ‘light touch regime’.
That was the key message from Hempsons partner Deborah Ramshaw when she addressed a recent PCC workshop in London.
Ramshaw told participants that although the new regulatory regime, which came into force in April 2016, is less prescriptive than the full regulatory regime, commissioners and their NHS partners still face the very real threat of legal challenge if they fail to act reasonably and transparently.
