Virgin Care beats GP federation to £176m adult health services contract


I've seen the procurement process and even if it's done fairly it is heavily advantageous for big company who have dedicated staff to manage the procurement. Smaller organizations with no expertise application will have no chance. This doesn't mean you'll get the best provider. A bit like the job interview - one that can appear nicer on the day will pip those that's capable but doesn't do so well on selling themself
