The UK National Health Service Can’t Find a Chief Commercial Officer – Why?

Peter Smith reflects on the complexity of hiring a chief commercial officer for the UK’s National Health Service, and asks why it has been such a drawn-out affair.

You may recall the recent webinar where PSF presented the results of their two-year study on the Metrics of Public Procurement. They found no evidence of a consistent measurement framework to guide management and the oversight of trillions in spending, so they studied current practices and came up with a potential path forward that could be utilised across the world.
