The Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) have a statutory duty to meet the requirements of the Health and Social Care Act (2012) including the provision of NHS Continuing Healthcare and NHS Funded Nursing Care. This is undertaken by assessing, reviewing and case managing patients who are their responsibility where they have been identified as likely to be eligible for NHS Continuing Healthcare, or a joint funded package of care or are placed in a nursing home and are eligible for receipt of Funded Nursing Care.
The CCGs have developed a service specification in light of the NHS England 5 Year Forward View and in the context of the strategic vision of the CCGs within Derbyshire. The service specification will be reviewed as the Sustainability and Transformation Plan (STP) develops across Derbyshire and Derby City. The principles of which are for a seamless health and social care service, which is person centred, promotes independence and is delivered as close to home as possible. In order to achieve this there will be a focus upon ‘place-based systems of care’ and working in collaboration and partnership across organisations.
In relation to Children and Young People (C&YP) the CCGs are key partners in the Derbyshire and Derby City Children and Young People Strategic Partnership Boards, Children’s Trust and Derby and Derbyshire Safeguarding Children Boards (LSCBs). The CCGs have joint commissioning arrangements in place primarily in relation to C&YP with complex health and social care needs.
The contract will be for an initial 36 months, with the option to extend for a further 24 months. The anticipated contract start date is 1.4.2017.

1) Entering general supplier information. Attain utilises the Cabinet Office Supplier Information Database (sid4gov) to manage and assess general pre-qualification information in the form of a profile.
Sid4gov has been developed by the Cabinet Office following agile development principles to provide a replacement for sid4health in the 1st phase, with subsequent developments planned to improve the scope of the questions, scope of user access and integration with other eEnabled applications. The future vision is to create a single supplier registration portal that will provide 1 place for suppliers to register and provide information for procurement in support of management information requirements and responses to tenders across the public sector. This portal will also provide public sector buyers with a single place to access supplier related information in support of market engagement and procurement processes.
Candidates are requested to provide their profile in sid4gov.
In order to access sid4gov for the 1st time, you will need to register, providing your individual and organisation details including the relevant DUNs number. The use of a DUNs number is mandated for registration and will support identification of suppliers across all eEnablement applications. This will help government to improve data quality throughout procurement and is a key enabler of the policy for transparency. It will also assist in the future development as we integrate across other applications in support of a single registration process. There is no cost to suppliers in registering for sid4gov or getting a DUNs number.
Candidates should ensure all the mandatory fields of their sid4gov profile are completed. Failure to comply with the completion of all mandatory fields could result in the elimination from the procurement process. Please note D&B data will be supplied automatically by D&B.
Candidates must publish at least 1 validated profile to make their profile available for buyers to view generally.
