Michael Pace

Managing Director - NHS London Procurement Partnership

Michael has more than 30 years’ senior procurement experience across the UK and North America, in the NHS, retail and manufacturing sectors, with a focus on leading innovative procurement programmes.

Currently Managing Director at NHS London Procurement Partnership, Michael previously spent six years with Trading Partners, the e-auction specialists who operated out of offices in London and Chicago. Following this, his NHS procurement experience has been extensive, with four years as Head of Procurement at Great Ormond Street and eCommerce work at the NHS Purchasing and Supply Agency. Michael was NHS LPP’s Commercial and Business Development Director between October 2011 and November 2012, before returning temporarily to the private sector to provide consultancy advice, leading and overseeing a doubling of e-auctions for ASDA as one of his many successful projects.

Seeing the move towards greater cross system working in the health service, Michael returned to the NHS in 2015, bringing with him his passion for collaboration and innovation between national and local networks.

Over the last three years at NHS LPP, Michael and his team have continued to work hard to support members to respond innovatively to the opportunities and challenges of the changing procurement landscape. NHS LPP has been a solution provider for the NHS in London and, as an organisation, is aiming to be a trusted advisor over the coming years.

Michael is passionate about working closely with colleagues in London on building a one workforce approach and promote collaboration between organisations, so that talent in the NHS can be utilised to support wherever it is needed across the capital.

As a champion for learning and development, Michael is working as one of the learning and development leads for Health Care Supply Association (HCSA), as well as supporting the Procurement Skilled Development Network (PSDN) network across London and further afield to help guide the next generation of procurement professionals.
