How to buy our services in the UK and Ireland?

Althea features on a number of NHS Frameworks having been appointed onto each after a rigorous OJEU tender process. Alternatively, following the new Public Contracts Regulations 2015, healthcare providers can access Open, Restricted, Competitive with Negotiation, and Competitive Dialogue procedures. Where services are below the OJEU threshold – e.g. individual maintenance contracts or equipment rentals – these can be procured directly from us. For further information please contact 0118 900 8100.
