First Aid Tenders – A guide to Public Sector First Aid Contracts


First Aid Tenders – A Complete Guide

Hudson’s Healthcare Tenders portal brings you a huge variety of healthcare-related tenders, suitable for your organisation. Healthcare Tenders is a resource designed to help you source and secure new business opportunities via the public procurement process. 

Our dedicated in-house opportunity trackers manually search thousands of opportunities daily. Through our Healthcare Tenders portal, we provide you with the latest, most relevant and current contract opportunities, including First Aid Tenders.  

Our intuitive keyword search tool removes the complex and often misleading issue of CPV codes. Meaning that you are only presented with the specific Healthcare Tenders (i.e First Aid Tenders) that you want to see. Saving your business time, resource and most importantly, money!

There is a wide variety of First Aid Tenders available to you through our Healthcare Tenders portal. These are suitable for organisations of all sizes, inclusive of small-to-medium-enterprises (SMEs), charitable organisations and national healthcare agencies. 

First Aid Tenders tend to fall into one of the following three categories:

  • The provision of first aid at an event of stated location, i.e at an organised event, such as a music festival;
  • The provision of first aid / health & safety training within the workplace, schools, community groups, etc;
  • The supply of first aid equipment to NHS hospitals, coastguards, schools, etc. 

First Aid Tenders are available through a number of different contract types. This will give your organisation flexibility in the tendering process. For example, you can tender for: 

  • A standalone contract;
  • A Framework Agreement;
  • A Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS)

To be awarded a First Aid contract, you must typically pass a number of stages as part of the NHS tendering process. These stages include: 

  • A Selection Questionnaire (SQ)
  • Quality or Technical Responses
  • Pricing proposals

Initially, you must pass all sections within the SQ, demonstrating how your organisation meets the buyer’s requirements. This may include providing evidence of: 

  • Policies and procedures
  • Any certifications and qualifications
  • Insurance 
  • Your organisation’s finances

All healthcare initiatives within the public sector are highly regulated. This is because care must meet particular standards. Additionally, the public sector is accountable for how it spends public money. Local Authorities and Councils will therefore tender through ‘public sector procurement’ routes. Supplier’s will be required to provide the above documentation and evidence to prove their capability to undertake the work, in accordance with first aid regulation. 

First Aid tenders are typically procured by local authorities who require the provision of first aid, training or equipment within their area. Tender opportunities will typically come in the form of a framework or DPS.

As suppliers are enlisted to provide the work over an extended period of time within the local authority area.
