NHS England wish to commission a GP service for the patients currently registered at St Georges Medical Practice as a branch surgery of a local GP practice holding an existing GMS, PMS or APMS contract. St Georges is located in Worle, Weston-super-Mare, North Somerset. This is an area of new housing which is set to grow in due to a number of new housing developments which are now under-way.
This service is being commissioned due to the term expiry of the current APMS contract on 30.9.2016 and following the decision not to award a contract as part of the recent APMS procurement exercise.
There are currently 3 482 patients registered at St George’s Medical Practice. The weighted list size is 3 026,48. The list size has been increasing and the population is set to rise in coming years due housing developments under-way in the local area.
The provider will have to meet GMS core hours, currently 8:00 to 18:30, 5 days per week. During these hours the site will be expected to be open to deliver face to face appointments for patients currently registered with St George’s practice and/or for patients of the main surgery for whom this would be a convenient alternative.
Any changes to opening hours will require NHSE approval and demonstrate that the effect on access will be at least neutral. Changes to hours or services will be subject to patient engagement and consultation which is the responsibility of the contractor.
The provider will receive the GMS price 76,44 GBP per weighted patient in-line with other GP contracts locally.
The service will be added to an existing GMS, PMS or APMS contract. This service must be fully operational by no later than 1.10.2016.
TUPE will apply to the contract.
Providers must have the appropriate Care Quality Commission (CQC) registration and comply with the all other necessary technical, capability and capacity checks as detailed in the Organisational Questionnaire and Specification / Tender documents.
