‘We sought Jackie’s help to provide support to the Supply Chain Transformation programme and to provide technical expertise and knowledge within the Project Team. Inventory Management systems and process are relatively new to the NHS and it was invaluable to have someone on the project who had already been through such a transformation – using that experience to advise and to challenge the team to ensure the best outcomes for OUH and our patients.

With her depth of supply chain knowledge, Jackie has made numerous insightful observations and recommendations that have changed our current working practices to enable us to work towards best practice. She has provided training and guidance to the Supply Chain Team and promoted and encouraged continuous improvement and learning as an ethos.’

‘We wanted an external assessment of our current supply chain processes, including those sitting outside of our department, allowing us to redesign the internal supply chain prior to implementing an inventory management system. The recommendations made within the report have initiated useful conversations within the Trust about the level of clinical time being spent on supply chain activity and a roadmap of development has been created for the Logistics Team, to increase the scope of the service offering.
I have already recommended Jackie, having worked in the NHS she brings an in-depth knowledge and a real understanding of the challenges we face whilst using industry best practice to offer achievable solutions.’
