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


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.
