General Dental Services Tender Writing
Our team of bid writing consultants have experience writing successful bids and tenders and helping our clients secure contract for general dental services. Our experience extends across all specialisations within the dental services area including endodontics, oral surgery, Domiciliary dental services, prison dental services and urgent dental services.
Contracts for dental services are mostly commission by the NHS and most of the time, they are specific to a geographic area. This means there is great scope for local dental providers to secure contacts in your local area even if you are only a small provider.
Most contracts are awarded as framework agreements, although some are also awarded to a single supplier, particularly more specialized contracts which require a highly specialized response. For any dental services provider, tenders and bids present a great opportunity to grow your business and secure more consistent work.
How we can help you win Dental Tenders?
Our team is able to work with you to write a compelling response to your next dental tender. We take the time and stress out of the process, and understand the language and response the NHS is looking for in your response. We are able to assist in covering topics such as:
A detailed and quality implementation plan is critical to convincing the reader that you will carry out a smooth transition to your services. The reader wants to know it has been well thought out and you will work constructively with all stakeholders to implement the contract
Patient Focused Care
It is important to demonstrate that you will take a patient focused approach. This should be reflected in your culture and approach, as well as your processes and systems.
Is another area which requires attention and an evidence-based response. Not only do you need to ensure you adhere to all relevant regulatory standards and have the right safety standards in place in your practice, you also have to ensure you address your prevention and control processes and make sure you have the appropriate clinical audit processes in place.
Practice location and social value
These two areas often go hand in hand. Firstly, you need to demonstrate that you are based locally and are able to deliver the services locally. From having an office in the local area, to working with local suppliers and having local employees, proving you will have a strong local presence for the contract is critical. Secondly, you need to demonstrate the social benefits of awarding you the contract. For example, you may use local suppliers and ensure the downstream economic benefits of the contract will flow through to and stay in the local community.
