Description

North of England Commissioning Support (NECS) is working for and on behalf of NHS England & NHS Improvement North East and Yorkshire (the Contracting Authority) and under co-commissioning NHS South Tyneside Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) (the Commissioner), who are conducting a Request for Information (RFI) exercise in order to gain a better understanding of the capacity and appetite of the market to provide an Alternative Provider Medical Service (APMS), currently delivered at St Georges Medical Centre and Flagg Court Primary Care Centre, South Tyneside.
The current service has 7,322.48 weighted patients (6751 actual) as at April 2021 and a contract value per annum of circa £675K (exclusive of QoF, directed enhanced services and any CCG commissioned local incentive schemes)
It is important to note that this PIN/RFI is not a call for competition and as such potential providers will need to express an interest in any future tender opportunity once a contract notice is published in Find a Tender (FTS) and on Contracts Finder.
It should be noted that this PIN/RFI invites individuals and organisations to express an interest in this RFI exercise only, and it is NOT a pre-qualification questionnaire, and is NOT part of any pre-qualification or selection process. This PIN/RFI is intended as an awareness, communication, and information gathering exercise. An expression of interest is no indication of a commitment to participate in the RFI process nor does it infer any preferential or special status on those individuals and organisations who express an interest in the RFI exercise.
NECS is utilising an electronic tendering portal (In-Tend) to manage this RFI and as such interested individuals and organisations will need to register on the portal to access and return the RFI documentation.
It is free to register on the portal, which can be accessed at any time of day.
Should you have any queries, or are having problems registering on the portal, you should contact the eTendering provider by Email: support@in-tend.com or by phone 0844 2728810 Website: https://in-tendhost.co.uk/nhsnecsu/aspx/Home
Helpdesk Support is available (Monday to Friday 8:30am to 5.00pm).
Potential providers are to note that the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006 (as amended) may apply to a future procurement including the New Fair Deal non-statutory policy setting out how pensions issues are to be dealt with when staff are compulsorily transferred from the public sector to independent providers delivering public services.
The RFI documentation will be accessible from 11 May 2021 and completed RFI responses must be submitted by 7 June 2021.
