The Health and Social Care Act 2012 requires local authorities with adult social care responsibilities to commission a local Healthwatch.

The successful provider will be required to ensure the local Healthwatch is of benefit to patients, users of services, carers and the public by providing support to get the best out of services, improving outcomes and supporting services to be more responsive to what people want and need. To work with communities to influence commissioners to design and provide better health and social care services.

The local Healthwatch will need to be independent and coordinate and build upon all of the existing mechanisms for engaging users of health and social care services, established by the Authority, the National Health Service (‘NHS’) and the networks of user-led organisations. It will also establish relationships that engage communities, patients, service users and carer groups, bringing a strong voice to the Health and Wellbeing Board of which the successful provider will be a member.

Tenderers shall be experienced in providing similar services and shall also be required, as part of their Tender, to complete a Selection Questionnaire containing information about their economic and financial standing, technical capability and other general information. This information will be assessed to establish that the organisation is financially viable and technically capable of undertaking a contract of this nature. Also, as a pre-condition to their Tenders being evaluated, Tenderers will have to satisfy the mandatory and discretionary grounds for exclusion contained in the Selection Questionnaire.

The Authority carries out financial appraisals of all organisations that Tender for the Authority’s contracts to ensure that such organisations satisfy the Authority’s minimum standards of economic and financial standing.
