To support the East of England Region to complete a robust process which achieves the highest standard of services for our patient population we would like to conduct a market engagement event with any interested provider. The purpose of this event is to provide the market with early sight of the requirements for the service, enabling interested providers to have an increased understanding of the requirements and seek any feedback from providers in testing the deliverability of the proposed service model. Undertaking engagement at this stage means that we can change the approach should significant concerns be raised.
This event will be hosted virtually via an MS Teams Webinar on Wednesday 24th March from 2pm – 4pm.
