II.2.4)Description of the procurement:

The Seven* Sussex Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs), acting together under a Collaborative Commissioning Agreement, wish to procure a Service Provider for the NHS 111 Clinical Assessment Service, Home Visiting and Out of Hours Service for Sussex (See Note 1).

Each year the NHS provides around 110 000 000 urgent same day patient contacts, with around 85 000 000 of these being urgent GP appointments and the remaining being though A&E or minor injury clinics.

In Sussex the NHS 111 service takes around 363 000 calls a year, with 75 % being taken out of hours (6:30 pm — 8:00 am). Within the existing Kent, Medway Surrey and Sussex contract around 43 % of the total calls taken are for Sussex.

The Commissioners are to offer the contract as a 5 year initial term with a single option to extend for up to a further 2 years (5+2=7 years maximum duration) at the sole discretion of the Commissioner. The Commissioners will take the view to extend to the full seven years as soon as it is appropriate but with the first consideration at 18 months and thereafter at regular intervals.

The vision for a more integrated urgent care system across Sussex will improve patient care and choice, as well as, streamlining and improving services for staff working in both primary and urgent care. The new NHS 111, Clinical Assessment Service and Out of Hours Service will be vital in the journey to integrate urgent care across Sussex.

The Commissioners have set a maximum total financial envelope of 72.72m GBP for the seven year maximum duration.

The new service will need to be in place by 1.4.2019, and the Commissioners expect to complete the procurement process and award the contract during Aug 2018.The deadline for submission of completed bids is Thursday 29.3.2018 at 12:00 pm (midday).
