Description of the contract

Request for Quotations ILM Level 5 and 7 Certification Sussex Community NHS Trust We are the main provider of community NHS healthcare across Brighton and Hove and West Sussex, and the largest community healthcare provider in the South of England strategic health authority that stretches from Cornwall to Kent. Our expert teams provide essential medical, nursing and therapeutic care to over 8,000 adults, children and families a day. From our health visitors looking after new born babies to our community practitioners (nurses and therapists) caring for the frail elderly, we look after some of the most vulnerable people in our communities. Around 90 per cent of all patient contacts with the NHS happen in community settings or in primary care (mostly GP services). Around 1 million people live in the area we serve, and it is very likely that most of them will come into contact with our services in some way: as a patient, a carer or relative of a patient, or through a link with one of our staff members or volunteers. In this way what we do helps form the bedrock of the NHS, and we provide care that truly spans from ‘cradle to grave’. People live their lives in the community. It’s generally where they want to stay if they are unwell, unless they require more specialist care or treatment. Our aim is to provide the right services to make this happen wherever possible, and to stay close to our patients even if they go into hospital so we can help them return to the community as quickly as possible. In order to do this we must ensure that our staff receive appropriate development including our leaders and potential leaders.
