NHS Supply Chain is pleased to announce that it has signed a lease for a new purpose-built regional distribution centre (RDC) in Widnes.
The new site will be known as NHS Supply Chain Gorsey Point and is set to replace the existing Runcorn site operated by NHS Supply Chain’s logistics provider, Unipart Logistics after its lease expires at the end of March 2023.
The Gorsey Point site in Widnes is only 6 miles away from the current site so NHS Supply Chain say they are retaining the valuable experience and expertise of colleagues.
Chris Holmes, Supply Chain Director, NHS Supply Chain, said: "This is an exciting time for NHS Supply Chain as this is a significant step within our transformation activity to increase capacity in our network. This investment will ensure that the appropriate infrastructure is in place to deliver the future needs of patients, and that the network is invested in to deliver the best possible service to the NHS."
The new site is 400,000 square feet. Equivalent to 6 football pitches.
