Are you wanting to bid on healthcare contracts, but don’t know where to start? Looking at some examples of healthcare contracts can help you gain more perspective.
When it comes to healthcare, there are so many services provided within the industry. Which therefore means that there are many healthcare contracts you can bid on.
With this in mind, finding healthcare contracts can be tricky if you don’t know where or what to look for. Firstly, you need to narrow down what type of healthcare contract you are looking for. The type and size of healthcare contracts you can tender for will be down to you and your business.
Most healthcare contracts will fall under the following categories:
Domiciliary Care – These are contracts relating to care provided to elderly and disadvantaged or vulnerable people.
An example of a domiciliary healthcare contract we have previously sourced is:
Open Framework For Children’s and Young People’s Complex Domiciliary Care Services
NHS Hampshire, Southampton, and Isle of Wight Clinical Commissioning Group – South East – £30 Million
Supported Living – This refers to care services provided to vulnerable people who need at home care support. This could be people with learning difficulties, young offenders or even asylum seekers. Ages will also vary, therefore the care services can vary too.
A supported living contract we have previously sourced is:
AT1115 Supported Living for People with Mental Health Needs
Luton Council – Eastern – Budget: Undisclosed
