The past couple of months have seen a great increase in the number of health and social care tenders being released, leading to increased tender writing and contract opportunities.
In some ways this may be seen as a sign of things to come as the NHS is seeing more privatisation across all sectors. A recent report showed that NHS private sector tenders could be worth up to £20bn as a result of changes in healthcare policy, coupled with pressure on public finances.
“Despite many challenges, the private sector is increasingly providing healthcare services whether paid for by the taxpayer or directly by consumers at the point of use,” said Justin Crowther, one of the authors of the report. “Whether this is to turn around underperforming hospitals, operate GP surgeries, deliver community services or create centres of excellence in areas such as pathology, NHS commissioners are increasingly using the skills and capital of the private sector.”
The report also points out that the private sector already dominates in the provision of home care, care for the elderly and services for those with mental health issues or learning difficulties. As a company we have been approached by a number of care organisations this month to write tenders for a variety of contracts. All the companies have noticed an increase in the number of contracts being released and have said that at the same time bid management and tender writing is becoming more difficult. Many companies are competing for the same contracts, making it very hard to stand out from the crowd and submit a winning bid.
