YORtender is the Council’s Tendering and Contracts System. Any contracts with the value of £30,000 and above will be advertised via YORtender, and suppliers who have registered on the system are able to receive and return tender and quotation documents electronically.

There are 22 local authorities across the Yorkshire and Humber region that use YORtender as their Procurement portal. This brings together a single procurement approach across the region, allowing easier and more effective collaboration between councils.

Suppliers only need to register once on the system stating which category of goods, services or works they provide. An electronic directory is then created for all buyers across the 22 registered Authorities to access when advertising tender opportunities.

Overseas visitors accessing NHS services (2013)

General practitioners have the responsibility for providing essential services and enhanced services to all patients who register with them.  Access to primary care services is not dependant upon immigration status or intention to stay in the UK.  Any patient who will be resident within a practice’s inner boundary for greater than 24 hours to three months is entitled to registration for free NHS primary care services.  Practices must not discriminate and should demonstrate fairness in access to registration through their practice registration policy. There is no longer funding for patients who register temporarily with a practice though practices may choose to temporarily register a patient if the patient does not intend to remain within the practice’s inner boundary.
