The basic principles that mirror that of the Open Procurement route will be followed for this procurement to test the capacity, capability and technical competence of tenderers in accordance with The Public Contracts Regulations 2006 (as amended). Regulation 120 of the Public Contracts Regulations 2015 provides for a temporary exemption and saving for certain NHS procurements. Regulation 120 provides that nothing in the Public Contracts Regulations 2015 affects any contract award procedure that relates to the procurement of health care services for the purposes of the NHS within the meaning and scope of the National Health Service (Procurement, Patient Choice and Competition) (No 2) Regulations 2013(b), that is commenced before 18.4.2016 and any subsequent contract awarded as a result of such a procedure. The current Part B regime of the Public Contracts Regulations 2006 (as amended) and NHS (Procurement, Patient Choice and Competition) (No 2) Regulations 2013(b) will continue to apply to the commissioning of these services until 18.4.2016.
NHS England Lancashire and Greater Manchester are accountable for the provision of local General Practitioner (GP) services in the Lancashire and Greater Manchester area. Under the co-commissioning arrangements in place from April 2015, Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) have delegated responsibility and together with NHS England Lancashire and Greater Manchester are currently reviewing a number of practices in the Greater Manchester Area.
