Hi, I am Thomas Crouch, a Procurement Specialist at the Royal Berkshire NHS Foundation Trust. 

I have been in this role for just over a year having previously trained as a professional chef & commercial vehicle salesperson (Ford Specialist) so food & vans. 

My professional goal is to punch into the Procurement world and develop & assist, where I can, as much as possible. Given my progression within a short window from procurement administrator – to procurement specialist and now a National Council role, I think this is on track. 

I have been lucky enough to travel the world and lived in New Zealand for three years. One of my personal highlights was seeing a Blue Whale on a boat trip in Kaikoura.

I am the joint ICS lead for Procurement in North Central London. 

I currently attend the London Procurement Steering Board, and the London and East Of England supply chain forum. I am also a member of the NHS Supply chain resilience group and attend the 4 nations supply disruption meetings. 

I am also working with the central commercial function on framework hosting accreditation work . NCL are doing some key work around our supply chain teams and won the Supply Chain Excellence award for the public sector and more recently received HCSA highly commended. We are working collaboratively in a number of areas we have seen some challenges in wider procurement schemes but we are undertaking lessons learnt and revisiting our strategy. I thought there was a great programme at this years HCSA conference and some inspirational speakers providing key messaging on leadership. Hearing more from our supply chain colleagues would be very welcome. Focus at the moment is on data and identifying more opportunity via collaboration. Training on the new regulations and supporting our teams with these changes.
