    As part of the Trust's 2020 Vision, the Cambridge Biomedical Campus (the Campus) will be a biomedical campus of which key components are likely to include the presence of a healthcare-related education centre, a private hospital, a commercial hotel and any other appropriate facility, to be called The Forum. The Trust wishes to procure a strategic partner or partners (the Strategic Partner) who can work with the Trust to identify, agree and implement the best financial and operational model to provide the Trust with these healthcare-related educational, clinical and accommodation and other services, ensuring that all partners are able to benefit from their efforts, based upon the contribution made and the level of risk undertaken. It is envisaged that this will be a long term relationship that will initially deliver The Forum Project but may develop over time to deliver and finance other infrastructure and related services at the Campus.

    It is anticipated that The Forum will generate a revenue stream for the Trust over the long-term without the need for any capital expenditure by the Trust and with no consequential detriment to the Trust's ability to provide NHS services. The Trust will contribute land, on a long lease basis, to the venture. The Trust is expecting that its Strategic Partner will provide or procure all the financial resources required to design, build and operate The Forum.

    The Trust needs to procure education and training services to satisfy the training needs of its growing workforce on the Campus. As such, the Trust expects to enter into a arrangement with the Strategic Partner for such education and training services.

    It is the Trust's expectation the Strategic Partner will be interested in accessing services from the Trust to support elements of The Forum. Such support might include: sterile services, pharmacy, pathology, occupational health, energy/utilities management and, potentially, estate management services.

    The Trust may require additional services such as:

    Service category 7 (computer and related services);

    Service category 11 (management consultancy services);

    Service category 12 (architectural services);

    Service category 14 (building-cleaning services and property management services);

    Service category 17 (hotel and restaurant services);

    Service category 23 (investigation and security services);

    Service category 24 (education and vocational education services);

    Service category 26 (recreational, cultural and sporting services); and.

    Service category 27 (other services).
