Health Sector Opportunities for Hume businesses

HPV in partnership with Northeast Health Wangaratta, ICN and GROW is hosting a forum for local businesses interested in supplying Victorian hospitals on Thursday 23 May 2019.

The forum, one of a series hosted by HPV and health services in regional areas, will outline the health procurement process for businesses which may not have previously considered supplying hospitals and provide the following:

  • A high-level overview on how to engage in an HPV or health service tender with a view to getting more local businesses involved in health sector contracts and clarify the tendering process.
  • A networking opportunity for suppliers to meet with HPV representatives and as many local health service representatives as possible. This event aims to provide contact points for suppliers seeking work now and into the future.
  • An opportunity for suppliers to pre-register with HPV to further reduce the requirements of suppliers during an active tender.

A copy of the presentation is available here.

HPV and Hume health services have identified a number of opportunities, particularly in the indirect products and services contract area, that could be suitable for local businesses.
