NCF announces new Partnership with Marr Procurement

8 February 2017

NCF is pleased to announce a new Annual Partnership with Marr Procurement

Marr Procurement offers sourcing and procurement services split into two areas: Supply Base Optimisation and Strategic Sourcing.

“Many care operators today are facing more financial pressures than ever before.  It is therefore imperative we offer our members a way to address such cost pressures without compromising on the quality of care. I am therefore delighted to announce that Marr Procurement, the care sector procurement specialist, has joined the National Care Forum as a new partner in 2017.”

Vic Rayner, Executive Director, National Care Forum
“It is a privilege to be involved with the National Care Forum.  I have worked in the UK care sector for a little over 45 years and never before have I seen the kind of cost pressures that care operators are facing today;  for example, downward pressure on fee income and rising operating costs like the living wage, temporary labour agency costs and now Brexit-related inflationary pressures.  Marr Procurement is like a breath of fresh air in that before I joined the team everyone I talked to said what they liked about them was that not only do they produce outstanding results but they are also open, honest and nice people to work with. At at time when the UK care sector is facing real financial difficulties, if there is one organisation that can help to reduce operating costs without compromising on quality or care, it’s Marr Procurement."

Sir William Wells, Chairman, Marr Procurement

NCF members will be able to meet Christoph Marr and the team at the forthcoming NCF Annual Conference on 15-16 May at the Birmingham Conference and Events Centre.
