PCT Commissioning
“You should have a clear procurement strategy for primary care dental services setting out when you will openly tender for new services and when you will expand the existing market. Under the principles and rules for cooperation and competition, the factors a PCT will consider in reaching this decision must be clear and transparent. The PCT Procurement Guide identifies four generic criteria that PCTs should consider when deciding whether or not to issue a formal tender”
