Welcome to the East Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust buyer profile
A single gateway to access procurement opportunities from across East Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust, covering Bexhill Hospital, Conquest Hospital and Eastbourne District General Hospital, which has an influenceable spend of approximately £50m* per annum along with access to procurement information for other NHS organisations for whom this Trust provides a shared procurement service.
- It has been designed to provide information on existing and forthcoming contract opportunities;

The procurement team is working towards greater collaboration on procurement initiatives with NHS Commercial Solutions - www.commercialsolutions-sec.nhs.uk - NHS Supply Chain - www.supplychain.nhs.uk/portal/page/portal/Public and Buying Solutions - www.buyingsolutions.gov.uk/aboutus/Supplierzone/

The procurement teams will use the Delta e-tendering suite and standardised tender documentation. We will advertise our above OJEU threshold** contracts on Tenders Direct - www.ojec.com/ and below threshold contracts on Supply2Gov or Business Link
We are also working closely with the Eastbourne MP’s Commission to provide support/awareness of contract opportunities to Small and Medium Sized Enterprises (SMEs) based in the local borough/catchment area. This scheme also highlights supplier diversity and encourages sustainable procurement.
