An insider's guide to procurement for primary care providers

Understanding procurement and how to prepare a bid are critical to the future of primary care providers. Changes in recent years have made them more important than ever. More and more services are subject to a procurement process, rather than being simply directly awarded by commissioners. These include many of the “enhanced” services that GP practices could once expect to win almost by default.

This event on 6 December in London explains why understanding procurement matters, how the process works and how to prepare a bid. It includes practical advice, clear explanations of terminology and other technicalities, a walk through typical procurement documentation and questions, examples of pitfalls to avoid when preparing bids, tips on good practice, and advice on how to choose which bids to go for.
