Commissioning support resources

Practical resources designed to help Hospice UK members engage with commissioning by and contracting with statutory bodies.

As well as these publications, many of the briefing documents in the Policy and Advocacy section of our website will be of interest to staff involved in statutory commissioning and contracting.

Hospice UK publications

We aim to support members by providing reports and briefings that explore key issues for hospices in the NHS commissioning environment.

Guidance on bidding for tenders

Documents aimed at helping hospices understand what a winning bid looks like.

Information on opportunities to bid for tenders

The NHS and other statutory bodies advertise significant service contracts on a centralised website. Each week we search the Contracts Finder website and notify members through our 'Executive News Online' enewsletter about opportunities that may be of interest to them.

Searching for contracts

Our searches may not cover all the services provided by hospices, so we recommend hospices to regularly review opportunities in their own areas.

Health bodies and local authorities may also advertise opportunities on more local websites. These bodies should be able to advise where to find their current tender opportunities.
