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 – such as general medical and dental practices. More and more services are subject to a procurement process, rather than being simply directly awarded by commissioners.

These include opportunities to run GP practices (APMS contracts), or for dental practices, additional services such as orthodontic services. This event on 13 November 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, pitfalls to avoid when preparing bids, tips on good practice, and advice on how to choose which bids to go for.
