Competitive tendering with NHS Lewisham CCG
At NHS Lewisham CCG we plan and buy healthcare services from local organisations to meet the health needs of local people.
Buying healthcare services involves contracting with existing service providers and sometimes includes competitive tendering opportunities. We follow the Department of Health procurement guide for commissioners.
By regularly reviewing our plans and the health services we commission, we identify ways to improve efficiency, extend choice and access, and improve patient experience.
