The information will form the definitive measure of success against a wide range of outcomes including:
— Immunisation coverage supported through effective provision of in-year data to support targeted intervention.
— Offer and uptake of national screening programmes offered to newborn babies i.e. Newborn Blood Spot, Hearing Screening and Newborn and Infant Physical Examination (NIPE).
— Improvement of health outcomes for the 0-19 population of East Anglia and elsewhere as historically covered by this service.
— Management of disease outbreak.
— Achievement of the minimum standard for CHIS to enable delivery of Immunisation, Screening and Healthy Child Programmes across all local areas, resulting in effective delivery of children’s public health services, improved data collection for population health measures and better records on child health facilitating clinical and family decision-making.
The Provider will need to deliver the following three core service components across East Anglia:
1. An IT system (the Child Health Information System): The system should provide a cohort analysis function as well as a call and recall function. Current NHS community providers within the region are part of the National Programme for IT which has provided IT hardware and software (SystmOne) free of charge. This contract was decommissioned from 6th July 2016.
2. A Child Health Records Department (CHRD), the people who run the system; and
3. A Personal Child Health Record (PCHR), the ‘Red Book’.
The form of contract will be the NHS Standard Contract. The contract period will be three years with the option to extend for up to a further two years (maximum five year contract term). The estimated value is 1 430 000 GBP p.a.
Staff are currently employed on the existing contracts so it is likely that TUPE will apply to this procurement.
The procurement process will be run in accordance with Schedule 3 of the Public Contract Regulations 2015. The most economically advantageous tender derived using the criteria stated in the ITT will be successful.
