Description of the procurement:

NHS Oldham Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), is seeking information from qualified and experienced providers on the potential interest and capability of the market to deliver a Primary Care Urgent Treatment Service. Following a review of Integrated Urgent Care, the CCG is undertaking a process to implement a Primary Care Urgent Treatment Service to best meet patient needs. The Primary Care Urgent Treatment Service will be available to any patients that attend irrespective of the borough the patient resides in; this includes registered, non-registered and overseas patients.

A draft service specification has been developed that reflects a renewed focus of integrated working, intended to incorporate directives from the ‘Commissioning Standards for Integrated Care’ (effective from April 2017) and ‘Urgent Treatment Centres — Principles and Standards’ (published July 2017). The model is based on letting a contract to a single legal entity but this does not preclude innovative bidding models and potential providers can consider a range of models which will meet the CCG's requirements.

The purpose of this engagement with the market is to assess the level of interest from providers to deliver the service. Interested providers are advised to refer to the advertisement on Contracts Finder. Attached to the Contracts Finder advert is a draft service specification and Request for Information (RFI) and providers are invited to express their interest by completing the RFI questionnaire. There will be an engagement event to explain the service model in detail and explore the viability of the proposed service within the financial budget available. The CCG considers provider input to be extremely valuable and all those interested, including providers who may be interested in delivering part of this service as part of a wider collaboration, are invited to attend.

It is likely that this potential contract opportunity will be subject to a competitive procurement process to enable the CCG to identify the most suitable and qualified provider to deliver the service. Responses to the RFI will be used to inform the contract approach and as such, a response is important.

A lack of interest being expressed in response to this invitation, may be taken as evidence by the CCG that a competitive process may not be required, so potentially interested providers are advised to respond.

The market engagement event is currently planned to take place as follows and all interested providers are invited to attend.

Time: To be confirmed

Date: 22.11.2017

Location: Venue in Oldham, details to be confirmed
