‘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.’

‘The trust became a Scan4safety demonstrator site in January 2016 and the focus was rolling out GS1 standards and an inventory management system. Two years on, due to time and resource constraints, we had not realised all that we had set out to achieve and the full functionality and capability was yet to be realised. We asked Jackie to carry out an assessment, of the Inventory Management System, it’s capability and functionality and that of the service provided by the Supply Chain Team. This provided us with an accurate current state assessment, a development plan and benefits realisation review.

Since the initial assessment we have engaged Jackie to assist with a full-service redesign. Jackie has been on site and developed, along with the team, a detailed plan to transform the provision of the service. The team have now undertaken Supply Chain Management training provided by Jackie, incorporating real life experience.
From having an unfocused demotivated team, they now have the knowledge, tools and focus with clear leadership to deliver their roles and service improvements.

I highly recommend to any organisation, not just healthcare providers, to engage with Jackie Pomroy Consultancy to help optimise your supply chain, teams, systems and processes.’
