Shortlisted project synopsis:

Practicus provided a team with large-scale logistics and supply chain expertise to support NHSEI with the Covid-19 Vaccine programme’s estates infrastructure.

Our team worked with stakeholders across the whole system to deliver the operational readiness plan and mobilisation assurance.

This team, made up of Anita Jackson, Simon Woodward and Kev Jackson, collaborated with substantive members of EECL (Estates, Equipment, Consumables and Logistics), National and Regional NHS staff and other partners – successfully ensuring the estates network could and did support vaccine rollout to scale, pace and geographic reach.
