Leytonstone, London, United Kingdom, 2010/11/03 - The NWCCA is the award winning collaborative procurement agency for NHS Trusts across the North West of England and over the last five years has helped achieve savings of more than £110 million.
G2 Speech - the leading provider of medical speech solutions has been appointed as a preferred supplier for digital dictation and speech recognition solutions to the North West Collaborative Commercial Agency (NWCCA) framework.
The NWCCA is the award winning collaborative procurement agency for NHS Trusts across the North West of England and over the last five years has helped achieve savings of more than £110 million by embedding commercial best practice and ensuring value for money procurement services.
Being appointed as a preferred supplier means that G2 Speech is in a prime position to enable the NWCCA’s 53 NHS member Trusts improve efficiency and make impressive cost reductions, both of which will contribute to improving patient care.
Henry Gallagher, MD of G2 Speech UK said: "Hundreds of companies applied to join this framework, and it is a mark of the quality of the digital dictation and speech recognition solutions that G2 Speech are supplying to NHS Trusts that we are one of the select few suppliers appointed to the framework. G2 Speech provides NHS Trusts with speech solutions from single GPs right up to trust wide implementations.
In Holland over 95% of hospitals already use a G2 Speech solution and NHS organisations in the UK are quickly realising why solutions like MediSpeech are the best choice for them too."
About the framework, Andy Brown, Interim Director of Strategic Sourcing at the NWCCA commented: “We are delighted to launch this digital dictation framework which, by following a rigorous procurement process, will provide Trusts with easy access to a range of quality suppliers all of whom have proven they can deliver the type of digital dictation solutions required at competitive rates. It is clear that through the innovative solutions these suppliers provide there are significant savings to be made in this area which can be reinvested to further enhance the quality of care provided to patients.”
