NHS Transport & Logistics Best Practice Group
Mission Statement: The NHS Transport & Logistics Best Practice Group is a member driven, proactive networking group striving for continual innovation and improvement in the delivery of fleet management, logistics, parking solutions and associated services.
The NHS Transport & Logistics Best Practice Group is a member driven, proactive networking group striving for continual innovation and improvement in the delivery of fleet management, logistics, parking solutions and associated services.
The NHS Transport & Logistics Best Practice Group provides a forum for those managing non patient transport services across all sectors of the NHS to network, share experience, identify innovation and develop their services to meet current and future demands.
Members have shaped the agenda for the next year covering locally-developed fleet management systems, advances in vehicle battery technology and a new ‘bolt-on’ generator which reduces individual vehicle running costs. In between meetings, members continue to support each other, year-round, as they always have.
The application of incoming legislation will continue to feature in the group’s discussions; such is the pace of change, and having regard to the recent General Election.

“As the Transport and Travel Advisor for the Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust which is one of the largest NHS Trusts nationally, my job remit is extensive and includes car parking, taxis, courier services, lease cars, Trust vehicles and anything else that the word transport can be aligned to. I must be aware of changes in legislation but also maintain policies and strategies to meet business needs and the Transport and Logistics Best practice Group has not only been a fantastic opportunity to meet and share experiences and good practice with my peers from other Trust’s nationally but also been very informative and supportive through the choice of ‘specialists’ who have attended to present to the group on matters that need wider consideration and to make us aware of various tools which can help to support delivery of an essential service within the NHS.NHS Transport & Logistics Best Practice Group Member
“This group has provided me with support and advice both during and outside of the group meetings for the past 5 years that I have been a member. More importantly the NPAG network facility has enabled us to share problems and get advice as within the group we have learnt that our problems are unique.”NHS Transport & Logistics Best practice Group Member
