Special Care Adult and Paediatric Dentistry - Market Update - WebEx 2nd October 2019 (new date)
Further to the Market Engagement Workshops held on 15th-17th July 2019, we would like to draw your attention to the planned follow up event taking place on Tuesday 8th October at 4pm - 6 pm.
This session will enable potential bidders to receive an update from the Commissioners regarding the feedback received at each workshop and Commissioner progress to date, as part of wider engagement to help inform the re-commissioning of services.
The 8th October replaces the provisional date of 4th September 2019 which was previously shared at July's workshops (and in the presentation slides shared afterwards).
This notice is placed in order to facilitate early engagement with potential providers, and relates only to a pre-procurement market engagement workshop
