I don't think that news will affect what VS are doing, the way I am reading it simply means that the NHS want to put in place a standard practice for purchasing items, so instead of each hospital ordering items for themselves the orders will be placed by a central body that will or should cut down overspending. The trust's will still need a single catalogue to order from.
- a sign that they are trying to come up with a solution internally which is bad news (for us and the NHS!) - a sign they are going to pick a provider like VS (although there are others) to fix the problem for them which is hopefully good news for us - a sign they don't have a clear strategy since it seems a bit of cherry picking has gone on regarding the products which isn't great news
The long term 2019 date sort of ties up with the research project ending in spring 2018 so I am ever hopeful we will be included in this movement. Maybe by then VS will have expanded its retail portfolio further to strengthen our position in the market. All imo of course...
I wouldn't worry too much as he/she is lurking as always, just cant stay away.
The way they have to fully type out how they "asked" for everything to be removed, makes me think more and more it was a ban after the abuse from them got too much to be acceptable on this site. Anyway we will never know and unless they decide to come back after the ban period the user will slowly and rightly be forgotten.
Now lets see if we can be given something to actually talk about this week after last weeks debacle...
