MedEconomics: Locate tender opportunities

GPs can use a new online portal to find bidding opportunities.

Described by the DoH as 'Match.com for NHS and suppliers', this new website lists all clinical contracts that are coming up for tender.

NHS Supply2Health (www.supply2health.nhs.uk) aims make it easier for PCTs to advertise the services they need and for GPs and other providers to identify business opportunities within the NHS that may be suitable for them.

PCTs are legally required to advertise tenders. Before NHS Supply2Health, there was no specific place for PCTs to publicise tenders, and advertisements could be easily missed. The DoH says the site 'will ensure that well-matched suppliers and contractors can hook up'.

The website enables GPs to search and filter advertisements by a range of criteria. They can also register to receive email alerts of any tenders placed on the site that match their search criteria.
