NHSGGC is progressing plans towards putting diversity at the core of their supply chains to include businesses led by, for, and with people with protected characteristics through a new, dedicated programme of free tender training webinars for businesses, social enterprises and supported businesses in partnership with the Supplier Development Programme, which can bring your business expert advice and support in all aspects of tendering.

In return, you will gain useful knowledge, tips and hints on how to do business with NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde to supply your goods, works and services and fulfil upcoming requirements in future contracts.  You'll also have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have, and have them answered! 

Talking Tenders with NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde - HIV/HCV Tender Webinar

HIV and Hepatitis C (HCV) continue to present a significant public health challenge in NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde (NHSGGC). NHSGGC is opening up an opportunity to provide services in relation to both HIV and HCV.

  • HIV - The two main groups affected are men who have sex with men; and people who are from countries of high prevalence, which in the UK context are people who originate from Sub-Saharan Africa. There are specific challenges associated with delivering HIV services to these community groups and this tender is for an organisation to develop, implement and evaluate creative community development intervention that would effectively address the HIV prevention and support needs of people from African Communities across the health board area.
  • HCV - The focus of the service will be adult individuals aged 18 year or over, resident within the board area, at current or prior risk of acquiring HCV as a result of injecting drug use. The tender is for an organisation to design, deliver and evaluate evidence-based interventions to those who have been diagnosed with HCV.

Representatives from NHSGGC will be in attendance to provide more information on the contract. In the second half of the session, one of SDP's expert trainers will show suppliers how to access and respond to the tender documents using the Public Contracts Scotland and/or Public Contracts Scotland Tender websites.

Please book your place in advance to learn more about this upcoming contract opportunity.
