The NHS and Social Care represent a significant share of all public sector spend. This is unlikely to decline as the UK deals with an ageing population and rising medical costs. Suppliers should consider bidding critical to any growth strategy.
Kittle Group has provided support to a wide range of clients – from small family-run businesses through to multi-nationals – for all aspects of health and social care services.
This project involved preparing a bid for the operation of an immigration removal centre for the Home Office and included the provision of primary healthcare for detainees covering: GPs, nursing, optometry, and dentistry. It also included arrangements for escorting detainees to and from hospitals for secondary treatment and follow-up appointments.
For the project, a team of three bid writers worked with the client’s subject matter experts to understand their solution for meeting the Home Office and Department of Health and Social Care’s stringent requirements. They then drafted responses that demonstrated the client’s competence to deliver clinical services safely and effectively, and their ability to meet national and contract-specific clinical standards, including dispensing controlled drugs within the context of a secure location.
This was a successful tender for the client who was awarded the contract by the Home Office.
Our client asked Kittle Group to help prepare a tender to London Borough of Havering for the provision of domiciliary care for residents unable to care sufficiently for themselves. Given the client’s busy schedule, our writers had to work extremely flexibly to maximise time spent gathering information and create a compelling account of how they intended to deliver the service. This meant arranging calls early in the morning or early evening and creating a writing plan that allowed as much time as possible for the client to review draft responses and confirm their factual accuracy, while still hitting the submission deadline in good time.
We also had to support the client to identify the value their service offered and benefits the Council would realise from the contract.
This was a successful bid for the client who was awarded the contract.
This project was for a small family-run business that offered qualified neurosurgeons to examine scans taken by the NHS to provide hospitals with an expert diagnosis of a patient’s condition. It involved demonstrating throughout the bid our client’s professional competence and qualification to undertake the work to a high degree of accuracy, information security, and assurance given the highly sensitive nature of the medical data being processes, and their capacity to complete the work quickly, often within 2 hours of the scan being taken.
Given the geographical location of our client, we undertook all interviews over the telephone, asking specific questions required to prepare the detailed responses, establishing evidence to substantiate the client’s credentials and experience.
This was a successful project with the client submitting a high-quality tender to the NHS that met their requirements and demonstrated the value our client could bring to the service.
