Contracts and tenders

Providing services to the NHS

Whether you are a multinational company, a small local independent, an NHS body or third sector organisation and you feel you can provide us with healthcare services, please get in touch.

We are particularly keen to hear from organisations who can deliver health services in new and innovative ways.

Any Qualified Provider

Any Qualified Provider (AQP) contracts awarded under The Provider Selection Regime (PSR) Direct Award B. 

Under the NHS Constitution a patient has the right of choice of a provider and team for an elective referral for first outpatient appointment (new episode of care).  For choice to apply, the patient must be referred by a GP, optometrist, or dentist into secondary care to a service and team that are led by a consultant or mental healthcare professional.

NHS Dorset is responsible for accreditation of providers who wish to secure a contract under the AQP regime, who have CQC registered locations within Dorset.

NHS Dorset publishes its policies on certain interventions on this website which should be considered before applying.  Before submitting an application, please check you have the following information:

  1. Details of the CQC registration for the locations in Dorset that you will be providing services from.  Applications for contracts for locations outside of Dorset should be made to the Integrated Care Board (ICB) within whose geographical footprint the location sits.
  2. For virtual, remote or online services, the ‘virtual’ (Dorset) location needs to be registered with CQC for a contract to be awarded by NHS Dorset.
  3. Your ODS code for the location(s) you will be operating from.
  4. Evidence of completion of the Data Security & Protection toolkit
  5. Evidence of registration with the Information Commissioner’s Office

As the management and administration of applications is done through the Cabinet Office approved e-Commerce system ‘Atamis’; you will need to have registered your organisation to proceed. Register for Atamis online.

There are guidance videos and support contact details on the website. Please direct any queries on the Atamis system to the support area on the website as NHS Dorset is unable to provide support in this area.

Registration on the system is only required once to allow you to view your existing contracts with NHS Dorset and any other contracting authorities on the Health Family e-Commercial system, as well as gaining access to any new opportunities.

Please complete an online application form.

There is guidance on the Atamis landing page or contact the Atamis helpdesk using the following details:
