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 and associated services.
Reducing costs has become core business of every single day in the NHS. The reduction of costs whilst transporting more and more people and goods, complying with ever-increasing legislation, reducing carbon and increasing safety is what NHS fleet managers or their equivalent have to do, and clearly show that they are doing it. The task is highly complex and challenging; but the technology and the knowledge, is out there to help achieve it. The NHS Transport & Logistics BPG is about harnessing both elements and making them work for us. In short, this group strives to bridge the gap from where we are, to where we need to be. It is a never-ending journey, with many challenges on the way.
The agenda will, as ever, continue to be ‘driven’ by our Members. Each and every item on our established Standing Agenda is chosen by the members as these items are in effect, their priorities. We address them in two ways: through the knowledge and experience of colleagues around the table; and through our carefully selected guest speakers.

“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.
“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.”
