If you've been searching for NHS tenders over the last few days, you will have noticed how few there are. 

Why? 

Well, it's the General Election, and the rules surrounding it. We've entered a phase called purdah, which started on 30th March.  

Diring this period, government bodies, including the NHS, refrain from announcing new policies or contracts. While not a legal thing, it's one of those generally accepted practices.  

So, it will be quiet on the tender front for a couple more weeks - great time to build your bid library, storyboard ideas and plan strategy for what will certainly be a busy May and June.
