Market Sounding and Call for innovative solutions
University Hospital Bristol & Weston NHS Foundation Trust and North Bristol NHS Trust have launched a period of Market Consultation ahead of launching a call for tender later this year. They are seeking innovative solutions and services that will deliver environmentally sustainable waste management solutions for hospitals.
The aim of this exercise is to open a dialogue with the supply chain to explore how to support suppliers and innovators to deliver what is needed. The feedback from the supply chain will be used to inform the Trusts tender specification and strategy.
The Project will also be holding a Market Consultation Event in April 2022 to give interested suppliers a chance to hear about and discuss the Trusts plans.

We are calling on all parts of the supply chain, together with innovation networks, to respond to this market sounding and call for innovation. In moving this procurement forward we need to understand the current state of the art, product and service developments coming on stream, ideas emerging from R&D projects, and opportunities for co-creation with suppliers to help us to deliver a progressive and forward-looking approach to hospital waste.
