Your Tender Team specialises in the writing and reviewing of orthodontic tenders. Our expert knowledge has been developed over a number of years in writing tender responses and supporting clients in the development theirs.
Who Commissions Orthodontic Tenders?
Orthodontic tenders commissioned by the NHS are regularly released all around the UK. Due to the scale of the procurement process, tenders are often released in batches covering specific geographic areas.
NHS orthodontic tender writing is a specialist skill and we have a process to support orthodontists and their teams with a tender to help them maintain normal service at their practice whilst we prepare their tender response.
What is Normally Involved in Orthodontic Tenders?
Orthodontic tender writing is an involved process and can place great strain on key members of staff within a practice if they do not receive the correct support. Tenders are normally lengthy and require a number of supporting documents to be uploaded to the portal at submission.
NHS orthodontic tenders can have question areas including:
- Organisational Structure & Leadership – the commissioner wants to know that you have a sufficient number of skilled professionals in place, led by an Orthodontic Specialist with vast skills and experience.
- Patient Journey – orthodontic treatment is usually delivered to young people and the commissioner wants to be assured that you will provide a patient-centric service and support the young person at every step of their treatment.
- Clinical Governance – seeking assurance that you maintain exceptional standards of service at your practice, including quality, safety, infection prevention and control, safeguarding, managing medical emergencies, audit arrangements, and learning from your experiences to continuously improve.
- Premises – the suitability of your practice in terms of being large enough to accommodate the increased demand, being in an accessible location, equipped, furnished and finished to the highest standards, and be compliant with health and safety, equality and clinical standards, best practice and legislative frameworks.
Other key areas within orthodontic tender includes completion of the Data Security & Protection Toolkit (the successor to the Information Governance Toolkit). Confirmation must be provided that this has been completed and is up-to-date. Evidence may be needed to support your submission. Further information can be found HERE.
It is also common for bidders to be required to upload company accounts, bank reference letters and be subject to a credit score check. These are often involve CREDITSAFE and EXPERIAN credit checks. Within the orthodontic tender documents, there will be financial thresholds that must be met whether that be turnover, acid ratios or to achieve a certain credit score. Your Tender Team does not have any influence on these factors, but we will confirm that you are suitable to bid before proceeding with any of our services.
