The Pelican team are working safely from home supporting clients who are still operational with any procurement needs.
For us at Pelican the priority is all about accommodating the needs of hospitals, care homes and other key front-line workers during these unprecedented times.
Many care homes are experiencing supply chain interruptions, reduced delivery drops, and product shortages. They are not able to buy core items such as bread, pasta, rice and fresh produce, as well as medical and janitorial products including PPE.
Our procurement team have been helping our care home clients to ensure they get as much of what they need, when they need it.
Our experience in the sector has meant we’ve been able to provide some quick wins, by thinking laterally.
The key here has been regular communication – providing information to clients well in advance and offering them an alternative solution if products were not available from their current supplier.
Thanks to our live product database, we are able to find similar products and liaise with suppliers that have them in stock.
“I really appreciate the support Pelican is providing us with during this difficult time. Pelican has been able to source for us PPE, gloves and paper hygiene products from alternative suppliers. Enabling us to continue delivering a high level of quality care to all our residents, for which we are very grateful.”Sharon McNicholl | Accounts Payable Manager at Silverline Care
