Hospitals team up to buy supplies

Doctors in Sheffield have created a scheme to reduce the price paid for supplies including anti-embolism stockings and surgical gloves.

The scheme saw staff and patients work closely across seven hospitals to agree on the best product and buy in bulk to save money.

The hospitals had been using a variety of brands and paying different prices for the same products which all did the same job.
