"The National Schools Procurement Directory is a one-stop 'bible' which nearly every school across the country uses. As an educational supplier it's a must to be featured in it. In order to drive your business forward schools need to know about you and the guide provides the perfect opportunity for this."
Claire Young, (BBC One Apprentice Finalist, Series 5) School Speakers
We recently agreed to purchasing an advertisement in the Tertiary Education Directory. Along with this we were given access to your Tertiary Education website before we even go in the book. From there we contacted the colleges & universities, acquiring email addresses for the relevant contact names. I must say the quality of the data has been excellent. We are delighted with the new business we have gained as a result of our telemarketing campaigns from your data. I look forward to receiving our list of Council/Local Government contacts in January. And I can see from what we have had already that the sales we will get should be of the same level.
Maggie Wilkinson - Smye-Rumsby Ltd
"I find the directory & online version very useful to help locate other NHS organisations. I have also suggested this product to other CCG's within Nottinghamshire, I can say that all other organisations would benefit from the use of this product."
Jane Robinson, Finance Assistant - Newark & Sherwood CCG
"In late 2013, we decided to use KALTZ for the first time by advertising in the 2014 Emergency Services Procurement Directory. Part of our decision at that time was the provision of a contacts database which was forwarded to us at the time of booking and has already proven of tangible benefit to us in the securing of 3 new police forces who are now using several of our products as a direct result of contacts via the database. In addition we are in further contact with another force which has yet to place orders however all communications to date have been as a direct result of the database provided to us. It is relevant to note that all of the above has been achieved before we were even included in the 2014 Directory, which can only prove of further benefit once out in use".
Tim Sparrow - Managing Director, BBB Investments Ltd (Leisure Products Division)
" I have used the National NHS Trust Procurement Directory for many years, mainly to find names of senior people in Trusts that I want to contact by phone or e mail. This was useful when I was a CEO though in those days I had a PA who did most of that for me. Now, as an independent consultant, I find the Directory an invaluable tool to ensure I have up to date contact lists for Trusts who I need to keep in touch with. I commend it to you."
Stephen Ramsden, Managing Director - Transforming Health Ltd
Thank you very much (for the advert) this looks great. We were pleased to see two copies of the NHS directory in the meeting room we were in yesterday in a CCG meeting in a hospital!
Joanne Tippett, Ketso Ltd
"Really pleased with the service levels and the "endless" patience of the design team in producing our first Ad in the Emergency Services Directory."
Bim Jinadasa, Commercial Director, Pen Mobile Solutions Ltd
"Kaltz have been very helpful to us as a company, and have shown great understanding and support wherever possible. They keep in touch regularly, offering help and advise where possible and if there is anything that you ever need them to do on your behalf they are willing to do so. Very friendly and highly recommended!!"
Jamie Chancellor - Autoclimate Ltd
"To whom it may concern. I would like comment on how useful I find the directory. The fact that the companies and products have been tried and tested by other fire services saves a great deal of procurement time. It also saves us from "re-inventing the wheel" when specifying products on refurbishment projects."
Matt Lyon BSc. MCIOB. MBEng. - Building Surveyor, Essex Fire & Rescue Service
"Yesterday I discovered a fabulous directory that I didn't know existed and was able to obtain lots of contact details within minutes, as opposed to the usual trawling of the Internet for clues. I also realised there was an online service available to improve the excellent facility still further. Marvellous! Who could ask for more?"
Jill Bell - Organisational Development Manager, East Lancashire PCT
"I would like to compliment the team at Kaltz for their professionalism and easy, friendly manner. The service offered is comprehensive and good value for the investment, it will allow my company to make contact with key personnel in the knowledge that the information is accurate and up to date."
Andy Terry - Enjoyability Ltd
"Thank you for my copy of the Procurement Directory. I find the Directory easy to use and by having Authorities and Suppliers listed by functional area you don't have to hunt around for the relevant people. It is helpful to have all this information in one publication rather than having two or three separate directories cluttering up the shelves."
Jim Park - Head of Horticultural Services, Preston City Council
"I write to thank you for your help with our recent query for information, and would like to take this opportunity to congratulate you on this year's edition of the Directory. As a PCT we have found it most useful."
Mike Scott - Director of Finance & Information, Central Derby Primary Care Trust
"The directory was incredibly useful to a number of people for different purposes. The division of the information by region was of great use as that ties in with the way in which we operate ourselves. The national sections were also useful for occasions when we wanted to target specific areas of councils on a wider scale. Additional breakdowns of the national sections would be useful (e.g. specific contacts for 'Procurement officer' Environmental health officer' etc.)"
Chris Hunter - The Environment Agency
"Thank you for the electronic access to the NHS Directory. This is a great development in addition to the hard copy of the NHS Handbook and I am sure that many NHS staff will enjoy the benefits of your obvious hard work and skills in making this available. To have this information at your fingertips is such a useful tool for NHS staff and I congratulate you on both the hard and electronic product that you have produced."
Ian Sturrock - HR Information & Planning Manager, Tayside University Hospitals NHS Trust
"I have found this directory of particular benefit when looking to contact Trusts in other areas as well as for referencing supplier details."
Ros Robinson - South Devon Healthcare NHS Trust
"I'd like to thank Kaltz Ltd for introducing our company to the new National Schools Procurement Directory. Within weeks of being included, we had an inquiry from a Community School which in turn led to an order of some considerable size. Central Roofing is proud to be associated with such a professional and market leading establishment and look forward to many years of business together."
Mark Baines - Central Roofing
"I've had a look through your directory, and I have found it to be well laid out and easy to find what you want. This directory would be a valuable tool for the NHS in ensuring only recommended contractors get included in the directory, ongoing recommendations by the users would ensure that contractors offering services in the directory maintain a quality service."
Steve Taylor - Acting Security Advisor, John Howard Centre East London & City Mental Health NHS Trust
"Comprehensive guide which is clear and easy to use - an invaluable reference for today's headteachers. .........good range and variety of advertisers"
Graham J Herbert - Headteacher (Rector), Lockerbie Academy
"I would be grateful if you could forward two paper copies of your excellent NHS directory to me please. I have found it invaluable in the past and now wish to update to this year's version. I am aware of the availability of the document via your web site but do wish to have the paper version handy for use by my team and I."
Robert Champion - Head of Human Resources, Middlesbrough Primary Care Trust
"I found Kaltz to be very professional in organising the Directory and the Directory itself has proved very useful."
David Byron - Head of Sales and Business Development, Professional Communications, SELEX Communications
"Further to today's telephone conversation, we confirm we would like to order from you a free of charge copy of the National Procurement Directory.......It would be useful if we need to price things up in order to put a business case together."
Hilary Goodlet - Admin Officer, NHS Counter Fraud Service, South West Regional Team
"I should just like to comment on how impressed I am with the wealth of information including contact names and telephone numbers to be found in the Procurement Directory 2007 which has been passed to me today. I have no doubt that this booklet will be of great use to Robex in continuing our business with the Emergency Services."
Alan Chamberlain - UK Sales Director, Robex Industrial Products Limited
"I was delighted to discover that not only did you provide such a comprehensive up-to date source of information, but that it is free of charge to NHS staff. I am in no doubt that every NHS public health department would benefit from a copy of your directory."
Dr Tracy Shield - Stockport Primary Care Trust
"Environtec has advertised in The National Procurement Directory for a number of years now and we have benefited from our inclusion. Our working partnerships with NHS based customers has increased and we are sure that this predominantly due to our involvement with the directory."
John Evison B.Sc (Hons) Tech IOSH - National Sales Manager, Environtec Limited
"Many thanks for sending me a further copy of The National Procurement Directory. I work for the Director of Pathology and often have to contact other neighbouring Trusts and PCT's. This directory will make my life a lot easier as our current directory is not only falling apart at the seams through years of use but is also very much out of date."
Chris Bannister, PA to Dr Ian Fry - Director of Pathology
"Once again we are advertising our equipment in both the Kaltz NHS Procurement Directory and the Emergency Services Directory. We have found Kaltz very professional in their approach and assistance, working toward producing good copy for the advert. We feel the directory is easy to use and informative and are happy to support its publication for all our Essential Services. It is a useful marketing tool and find it good value for money, enabling us to establish contact Emergency and NHS Services as well as other suppliers."
Peter Kelly - Hulme Martin Heat Sealers
"When we first decided to Advertise with Kaltz we were very sceptical about the spend and seeing any return on investment. 1 year on an we are beginning to see the value that the advertising has provided. Unlike other publications we work with, Kaltz does deliver quantifiable results to our business. More importantly, we get continuity of care as the same people within Kaltz make themselves available to us each and every time we need to talk . This is also very different to the typical experience we have. As such we envisage a long term and mutually beneficial relationship with the team and the production."
Graeme Hughes - Commercial Director, Innovise plc
"I can say that I have used your directories in the past (NHS & Local Government) and have found them useful instruments in assisting me in various tasks/projects I have been involved in. The information provided has also been useful in assisting internal queries that have been resolved efficiently and more importantly quickly."
Marion Howick - Administrative Assistant to Waste Management, London Borough of Sutton
"We have been using the National NHS Procurement Directory for a number of years as a networking tool when carrying out collaborative procurement exercises.The directory is user friendly and allows us to easily access our colleagues across the country, often to great benefit, both in terms of the contacts made, the information sharing that occurs and the mutual benefits that are derived. This publication definitely has a place in all NHS departments!"
Suzanne Scannell - Associate Director of Procurement, West Middlesex University Hospital NHS Trust
"Just to let you know our new NHS Procurement Directory has arrived and it is much improved with the inclusion of the organisation codes. Thanks for doing it - it'll make our life easier, and I hope other Trusts find it useful too."
Cathy Parker - Finance Team Manager - Income, York Hospitals NHS Trust
"Thank you for the prompt delivery of my directory - my very own copy now! I used to have to borrow well-used copies from my colleagues in the Finance or Estates Depts but that was not always convenient. I refer to the Directory regularly to access relevant companies (who are usually well versed with the vagaries of our NHS systems) for our fundraising and corporate events, as well as up-to-date contact details for colleagues in other Trusts throughout the UK. A really useful tool that should be on every Senior Manager's desk. Thanks again."
Ray Pritchard - Head of Fundraising, Conwy & Denbighshire NHS Trust
"...I have used this publication for 2-3 years and have found it to be my reference volume of choice. It has realistically the right level of information for senior staffing, and, importantly locations and addresses. Used by me, and now by the office here, on a frequent basis!"
Brian Goodwin - Ambulance Service Association, Former Chairman
"Our staff in the emergency patient communications centre find this directory invaluable in their day to day work when they have to check for addresses and telephone numbers of the vast number of NHS Trusts. Thank you once again."
Shirley Calvert - Corporate Services, Sussex Ambulance Service
"My partner and I (and our PAs!) used your Procurement Directory on many occasions during our employment in the NHS as Director of Finance and Chief Executive respectively. I hope that you are able to continue the free provision of this invaluable source of information to the NHS. Since leaving the NHS and establishing our consultancy firm in 2001, we have continued to find your directory the most comprehensive and up-to-date publication of its type for contacting senior staff in the NHS."
Karen Clarke - Partner First Consultancy for Healthcare
"I write to you to commend you for the format of the reference book and the content. This has been an invaluable reference point for me, as I have joined the NHS in England, from Northern Ireland. I make regular reference to the book for address information of colleagues and suppliers e.g. Will Beck, Stryker UK Ltd, GE Medical Systems, RS components to name but a few. I would hope that this book becomes a regular (updated) item as I and my team make good use of it. I wish you continued support and success for this publication."
Eugene Cooke - Head of Procurement (Acting), Royal Berkshire and Battle NHS
"We would confirm that we will take the usual advert in the march addition. I noticed on two recent visits, one to Queen Mary's London and one to Birmingham Heartland's Hospital, that your 2001 addition was on the desks of the Supply office rather 'Dog Eared' and bound with tape, certainly proving how well they are used in the NHS."
Roy Jones - MD Environmental Hygiene Products Ltd
"Thanks again for your prompt response to my request for the latest catalogue. I find this free source of information a valuable and handy tool to assist NHS managers (not just in purchasing) to locate their respective counterparts in other Trusts. This can only assist cross functional links and benchmarking comparisons."
V. Pross - Queen Elizabeth Hospital NHS Trust
"The information is displayed easily for the reader. The directory is divided into two regions, regional and national, that helps the reader to find the information they require with ease. The information for individual NHS Trusts is well laid out with useful contact details of each trust displayed... It also displays a wide range of informative advertising for your readers."
Clarissa Hudson - Department of Health
"Having had the opportunity to look at this publication, there is no doubt that it will be an extremely useful tool as we go about our business. I have already had cause to use the directory in contacting Trusts outside of our main area in regard to procurement projects of a similar nature to that of our own... My colleagues are of a similar opinion in their appraisal of the Directory."
A Hawkins - University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust
"You have no idea how many staff in Trusts throughout the country could use a copy of this as there are many wasted manhours and phonecalls, let alone frustration, in trying to obtain information on other Trusts... It is extremely well laid out and the sections make it very easy to quickly find information. I cannot praise you and your team high enough for your efforts... If there were an equivalent bestsellers list for the NHS you would walk it."
Ian Sturrock - Tayside University Hospitals Trust
"Thank you for our copy of The National Procurement Directory. I have taken time out to look through the contents of the directory, and have been extremely impressed with the information that is held in here. This directory will prove to be an invaluable resource in our department, and will save us a great deal of time and effort when trying to trace details of Directors etc. My only regret is I didn't know about the directory sooner."
Jacqueline Hall - Counter Fraud Service, Northern & Yorkshire Regional Team
