II.1.5)Short description of the contract or purchase(s)
The intention is to establish a National Framework Agreement for NHS England Sub-regions (formerly known as NHS England Area Teams) to perform ‘call–off’ for the annual delivery of Childhood Influenza Immunisations. This will allow for a quicker solution as providers will have been through Quality and Assurance checks to become accredited on the National Framework.
The aim of the service is to extend the existing annual routine immunisation programme against influenza to more age groups of children increasing quantity and quality to significantly lower the number of infections and outbreaks caused by the flu viruses.
It is the intention of NHS England to have the National Framework in place for a period of 3 years. ‘Call-off’ from the framework will allow for contracts up to 3 years to be commissioned by NHS England Sub-regions.
There will be a requirement for providers to demonstrate their capability to deliver to Sub-region local specifications at the point of call-off.
The contract value will be defined by each Sub-region at the point of ‘call-off’ from the National Framework in line with the service specification.
