Jan 06, 2023

The NHS spends over £30bn each year on goods and services. NHS Supply Chain manages the procurement requirement for NHS Trusts across England and Wales. They develop compliant procurement frameworks and catalogues, which enable NHS Trusts work to work with approved suppliers.

It receives 7.7 million orders each year across nearly 1000 NHS Supply Chain suppliers. As a result of the vast economies of scale NHS Supply Chains are targeted to achieve savings for their NHS customers.

We have been winning NHS Supply Chain frameworks and tenders for our clients ever since, thanks to our dedicated team of professional bid writers. We understand the requirements of the NHS Supply Chain, what they expect from bidders and how to draft high-quality and compliant bid responses.

Client feedback

“Donna and Maria were so helpful and professional from start to finish, highly recommend this company, used them twice for tenders and definitely will use them again. Thank you!” Laszlo Kohanyi

In this article, we wanted to highlight the benefits of the NHS Supply Chain to suppliers. To understand what a ‘framework’ is click this link to see our detailed overview.

Why become an NHS Chain supplier?

  • A single place to sell your healthcare products and services, which NHS Trusts are encouraged to use
  • Existing distribution centres managed by NHS Supply Chain
  • An ever-increasing requirement and spend
  • Established procurement procedures which can be utilised by both blue-chip organisations and SMEs.

NHS Supply Chain Frameworks – Bid Writing and Framework Compliance Reviews

In January 2023, Jacqui Rock, CEO of NHS England, stressed how procurement should not provide barriers to innovation, and how SMEs need to be able to get ‘their products through the door’. They are committed to working closer with suppliers to develop sustainable solutions, which is highly encouraging.

As bid writing experts, offering an outsourced bid solution, Thornton & Lowe has helped businesses win work on NHS Supply Chain frameworks. This has included advising on suitable NHS Supply Chain tender and framework opportunities, bid writing support and tender guidance. We also regularly help our clients secure contracts through NHS Supply Chain frameworks. We have developed some bid writing top tips, which can be found here, which will help you improve your required quality responses.

However, NHS Supply Chain bids can be different to most other frameworks and tenders into the likes of Central Government or Local Authorities. There is a focus on technical compliance to secure you place on the framework. While there is often less of a bid writing requirement, there is a substantial bid management project with a large number of compliance sections. With NHS Supply Chain frameworks, quite often we will be asked to review a draft bid and associated technical documents/ product sheets, checking for tender compliance and opportunities to improve the bid from our experience. This allows us to provide a bid consultancy and guidance to maximise your chances of success when bidding into NHS Supply Chain.

When bidding it is important you can create a compliant bid. A basic example is, committing to and evidencing compliance with their Supplier's Code of Conduct. Your tender submission will need to commit to their code of conduct which includes:

  • Ethical standards, such as promoting quality and diversity
  • Health and Safety
  • Business continuity planning
  • Anti-bribery
  • Environment.

How does an NHS Supply Chain Framework work?

Like any framework or tender, you will need to find a suitable opportunity and follow the instructions on how to bid. For their frameworks and DPS opportunities, NHS Supply Chain use a Jaggaer procurement portal, which can be accessed via this link. You can register on their portal to view live tender opportunities. You then express interest and access the tender pack. If you require support with the tender we will require these documents in order to provide a quote for bid management and guidance.
