Local enhanced services worth millions to be opened up to competition from April


Yes well - one contract in this category was let just before Christmas.This was in the form of a small framework (6 providers selected and the work split between them over a 4 year period - this is a well established system in use by Local Authorities and to be expected for LES) 82 tenders were submitted. Of the six admitted into the framework - 2 international companies, 3 national companies, 1 charity. None of the practices which tendered got through. This was because they did not know what is required or how to tender. The secret is preparation. We have helped some practice managers to get started. There is only one answer, if you want the work (and the income) find out what is required and start preparing now!
