Supplier portal

Welcome to Midland Heart.  This area of the supplier portal enables suppliers access to tender opportunities.  Midland Heart uses an environmentally friendly electronic tendering system known as Intend.  It is free to register your company details and once registered you will be able to express interest in tender opportunities.

Although tender opportunities are published (Find a Tender Service, Contracts Finder), it is your responsibility to check our system frequently for opportunities (click on “Tenders” when you land on the site).  Depending on where advertised, there can be a delay in the publication of tender information so always best to check our system directly.

If you have any questions for the team, please email procurement.team@midlandheart.org.uk
