Our long-term relationship with Nursing Homes Ireland (NHI) ensures that we have a thorough understanding of the needs and demands of running a busy nursing home and the demands that are placed upon you from a legislative, operational and commercial perspective. We understand the challenge of delivering a great quality of life to your residents whilst working within a restricted budget.
FCP also understand the health, safety and nutritional requirements specific to the healthcare sector, and we have the solutions you need.
Our suppliers can provide all of your requirements including:
Over 60% of the nursing homes in Ireland are already benefiting from being part of the First Choice Purchasing family. Let us take care of your costs whilst you take care of your patients. Brookhaven Healthcare like all businesses continuously keeps it’s cost base under review. In mid 2013 we moved to central purchasing with First Choice Purchasing (FCP).
FCP commenced the process with a very detailed audit of our purchasing patterns and costs. Following this, they negotiated reductions with existing suppliers and introduced new suppliers in other areas.
The whole process was very smooth and involved little or no work on our part. Since moving to FCP we have achieved significant savings and we look forward to building on this next year. The service provided by FCP is also free to users and this adds to it’s attraction. In addition to these initial savings, the team at FCP are very proactive in maintaining client contact and monitoring on-going client-supplier relationships.I have no hesitation in recommending the team at FCP based on the very positive experience we have had with them.

The Windmill Nursing Home Group have been working with First Choice Purchasing (FCP) as a procurement partner for the last three years. This year they approached us in relation to our Electricity costs across our five nursing homes and we were presented with a detailed analysis and price comparison of all the options available with all energy providers in the market. We found the information presented was transparent and easy to understand outlining all costs and standing charges.
By working with the FCP Energy partner (AccuEnergy) we have made a substantial saving on our Electricity bills in the region of €30,000 per annum across the group. The whole process was seamless and efficient with minimal input on our end and I would highly recommend all NHI members to avail of this service.
