Wirral Metropolitan Borough Council (“the Authority”) is issuing this invitation to tender (“ITT”) in connection with the competitive procurement of consultancy services to perform due diligence in relation to the integration of Adult Social Care services into NHS Community Services. The procurement is being led by Wirral MBC on behalf of the two parties involved i.e. Wirral NHS Community Trust and Wirral Metropolitan Borough Council. Both community nursing staff and adult social care staff currently operate from four Integrated Community Care Hubs on the Wirral; however, we aim to fully integrate the teams which may involve transferring staff to WCT. Organisations involved Wirral Community NHS Trust http://www.wirralct.nhs.uk/ Wirral Metropolitan Borough Council http://www.wirral.gov.uk/ Wirral Community NHS Trust (WCT) and Wirral Metropolitan Borough Council (WMBC) are in early discussions about the possibility of integrating Adult Social Care Services into NHS Community Services. Together, the Trust and the Council are exploring transferring social care staff to WCT. Due diligence support is required for this project to enable both parties to understand the risks, issues and mitigations required for the integration to be acceptable to both organisations. The work will be carried out for both clients jointly, informing both parties of the risks, issues and mitigations. WCT Board and Wirral Council Cabinet need to be assured that all risks associated with a transfer of Adult Social Care Services from the Council to WCT are considered and mitigated for, so that the transfer is acceptable to both organisations. All issues and risks need to be investigated, including: • Model of delivery; • Financial; • Workforce; • Quality of care; • Stakeholder interaction; • Policy changes; • And all other relevant issues and risks.
