Helping you to get on NHS Frameworks

Since the pandemic, it’s no surprise that there has been a sharp increase in government spending on healthcare. In 2019/20 the government pledged to spend £148bn on the sector, whereas in 2021/22 this rose to £190bn. The pandemic not only highlighted how underequipped the NHS is, but also how understaffed they are too. The focus on the industry and the increase in spend is to ensure improvements within the NHS including £33.8bn in response to the pandemic.

We know first hand just how well placed SMEs are to provide innovative thinking and robust services into our NHS. With an increase in spend planned for the sector, at GovData we want to ensure that you get on the right frameworks for your organisation to win NHS tender opportunities and grow your business.

Key information when applying for Public Sector NHS and Clinical Recruitment Frameworks


GovData are world leaders in Public Sector procurement, we’ve worked inside and alongside public sector procurement bodies including Crown Commercial Services, and NHS Shared Business Services since the 1990s giving our team and clients unparalleled insight into what a great framework application and bid look like and more importantly why framework submissions succeed and fail.

The budget for the Department of Health and social care is currently £190bn. The rapid increase in spend is mainly due to the pandemic with over £33bn allocated as a response. Whilst the budget is set to level off in the coming years, the opportunities for NHS and public sector healthcare tenders remains high.

Whilst healthcare continues to be one of the highest areas of public sector spending, over recent years the continued cuts to the budget have resulted in shortages of staff – a problem that has become even more evident during the pandemic. These staff shortages and Covid have created a crisis for the NHS, including a rising backlog of care for the NHS and public health bodies. The NHS priorities and operational planning guidance for 2022/23 encourages systems to accelerate work towards growing and transforming their workforce.


The Multi-Disciplinary Services framework is made up of multiple lots (services) and businesses who wish to provide the NHS with a range of quality consultancy services will need to demonstrate compliance with this framework in order to being invited for healthcare tenders.

The framework itself is a multiple lot (services) framework. Strategically designed to level the playing field for all consultancy services to align the right suppliers with the needs of the government. Frameworks such as the Multi-Disciplinary Services framework mean that the contracts are often awarded to more than one organisation based on the consultancy services required. And, best of all there’s no limit to the amount of lots your business can apply for as long as you are able to demonstrate credibility and capability for each lot.

Once approved and awarded a successful framework position your business is now eligible to supply solutions and services directly to the bodies included. With a clear mandate for all purchasing to be completed through approved frameworks a successful framework award can create huge opportunities for growth.

Recent research shows that 82% of framework submissions fail when they’re self-submitted – not because the company is wrong for the contract but typically a combination of technical documents, mis-matched answers, missed deadlines or a combination of all of these things. Creating a winning framework application takes time, experience and an inherent knowledge of the key scoring criteria that awarding bodies are looking for. At GovData our experienced team help businesses break through the barriers to entry and create effective, winning submissions week in, week out.

Ongoing cuts to the healthcare budget since 2008 have meant that the NHS and other public health bodies have been under increasing pressure to provide the world-class healthcare services we so heavily rely on in the UK. The damaging budget cuts have resulted in high levels of staff shortages and an increasing backlog of care that was only made worse during Covid-19.
As a result, the government has pledged a spend of £190bn to improve the department, including a focus on accelerating the work force and decreasing the backlog of care, meaning that the NHS and Public Sector organisations are able to utilise external consultancy services for specialist expertise and experience that departments are unable to recruit, develop or retain cost-effectively for. There has never been a better time to get on the required frameworks and utilise these opportunities for your business and its growth.

As part of the SME Agenda, the UK Government has been clear and transparent in their ambition to ensure the growth of SMEs, requiring that by law 33% of all public spending must be with SMEs.

At GovData our team are experts within NHS Frameworks and government healthcare tenders and are here to help you access the breadth of opportunities available within the public sector unlocking your growth potential with expert guidance to get you there fast.
