We are responsible for buying (commissioning) healthcare services from other providers to meet local health needs.
This commissioning process involves contracting with existing service providers and can include competitive tendering.
As commissioners of healthcare services we have a clear responsibility to make sure we make decisions and commission services fairly and openly, to get value for money.
Tenders, including adverts and other contracts available for public tender are in the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEC). You can subscribe and see more information on the OJEC website.
Additional information may be made available on request – however, details of individual bids while a tender is being processed will be refused if it would damage the commercial interests of anyone.
