What is the Knowledge Hub?

The Knowledge Hub is based on a "Community of Practice" platform which supports professional networking, collaboration and sharing information. The centre is a learning environment, so users must be willing to share and learn from each other.

All information relevant to the NHSScotland (NHSS) Procurement Reform Programme will be stored and communicated via the Knowledge Hub.  This will include:

  • information to support The Services Toolbox offerings 
  • Case studies
  • HPDG meeting details
  • Spikes Cavell information, and 
  • the People Working Group.

There will also be a discussion area for posting questions, ideas or problem solving requests, and an events page listing key meetings and events.

Who is it for?

The Hub is for NHSS staff involved in Procurement including Heads of Procurement, procurement teams in health Boards and National Procurement's Procurement Reform Team.
