This is not a call for bids or an invitation to submit offers. We are undertaking a preliminary market engagement exercise to establish solutions that are currently available in the marketplace for Secondary Care video consultation. This is part of a nationally led initiative to understand the products/solutions available on the market in a way that enables Trusts (and Systems) to compare products and improve buyer education ahead of potential upcoming local/system procurement exercises. We encourage providers and suppliers to engage in this work and have set out our intentions in this notice along with a Prior Information Notice published in OJEU. Please complete the market engagement questionnaire available via My Tenders and return not later than 23:59 on 23 October 2020 to A supplier briefing session will be held 11am on Friday 16th October 2020, to register for the briefing session and to ask questions and seek clarification outside of this session, please email
