The HSE intends to run a tender process to establish a National Drawdown Framework Agreement for Wound Mangement products in the coming weeks. This will not incorporate Negative Pressure Wound Therapy which will be dealt with in a separate process. Prior to finalising the tender specification, the HSE wishes to engage with the market place to inform them of our proposed approach and to get feed back on same. You are therefore formally invited to Cork University Hospital, Main Auditorium (just inside the main front door of hospital) on Monday 30th April 2018 from 9.15am to 10.15am. We are also interested in being informed by suppliers of any new products on the market to ensure that the proposed specification meets all the requirements for the HSE for the next few years. This information (product brochures, samples, evidence etc) can be given to us on the day in confidence or can be forwarded to us separately to Lynn.Tierney@hse.ie The format of the information session will be a power point presentation followed by an opportunity for questions and answers. Presentation will be supplied to all companies who attend, but can be forwarded on request to your company if you cannot attend. Responses of your intention to attend this information session must be returned to the eTenders tender box before 12 noon,Thursday 26th April 2018. Please advise your company name, contact details of who will be attending.
