Putting the strengths of your organisation across is never more important than when you are bidding to win new business.  Yet in their proposals and responses to tenders, many health and care providers fail to do themselves justice and waste time and effort on unsuccessful bids.

This workshop will guide you through the process of writing a successful bid, from understanding what the commissioner is looking for to tips on how to make a compelling case for your organisation.  You will also learn how to avoid some of the common pitfalls in the procurement process.

The workshop is led by Ben Farrelly, a consultant with extensive experience of evaluating responses in NHS procurements.

The event is aimed at anyone with a need to respond to competitive tenders to provide NHS services, including groups of GP practices hoping to win contracts for new services and voluntary sector organisations seeking to improve their knowledge of procurement processes and their understanding of the requirements of commissioners.

The workshop includes practical sessions and group work covering:

  • The rules
  • How bids are assessed
  • Forming a bid team
  • Standing out
  • Pitfalls
