II.1.5)Short description of the contract or purchase(s):

Manchester Airports Group (MAG) comprises Manchester, East Midlands, Bournemouth and Stansted Airports. An exciting opportunity has arisen to deliver Occupational Health services for the Group. MAG is expanding fast and we recognise the extra potential we can realise through a positive intervention and preventative approach to health management. We are seeking a business-focussed Partner to provide on site Occupational Health services aimed at preventing occupational ill-health, via the risk-management process; advising on the placement of Colleagues into roles which are compatible with individual health; and supporting the planned return of Colleagues with ill-health to work.

II.1.8)Information about lots

II.1.9)Information about variants
II.2)Quantity or scope of the contract

II.2.1)Total quantity or scope:

MAG are seeking a Partner to enable us to evolve a single M.A.G. approach to deliver consistent, cost-effective and exemplar OH services which are aligned and integrated to MAG business needs and support the organisation’s risk management processes and ROI for health spend.
We would expect our Partner to use the clinical competence necessary to undertake the task and employ appropriate and suitable clinical governance competence and practice to ensure the quality of services.
In précis, OH services required at M.A.G. are likely to be:
— Risk-based health surveillance (e.g. audiometry). Specific and statutory medicals (e.g. for fire-fighters and airside driving). We would probably use a day rate to achieve this.
— Role-specific, Equality Act compliant, pre-employment health screening. Some of this will require face-to-face assessment. We would also expect support to our Recruitment Team during their Recruitment Events. We would probably use a day rate to achieve this.
— Management referrals for sickness absence or health issues affecting work with capability assessments and advice on reasonable adjustments. We would prefer these to be delivered telephonically in the first instance. We would expect most management referrals to be undertaken and completed in a single session.
— Live case-conference advice and guidance to HR.
— Physiotherapy treatment. We would expect this to occur only where an OHA determines a clinical necessity. Our preference is for a telephonic assessment service with Colleagues being provided with exercises to be undertaken independently. We would allow 4 sessions of face-to-face treatment only per Colleague per instance. We would not expect repeated treatment for the same colleague with the same issue.
— Ergonomic assessments in the workplace as requested on a case by case basis.
— Health & Wellbeing promotion — a monthly series of campaign materials (linked to both National and International health days) to be provided to Internal Communications for release and branding across M.A.G. These should be provided during the third week of each month for the following month to enable communications to be delivered on the optimum date.
— The inclusion of a modern OH IT system infrastructure which enables electronic OH records, access to OH management information and data, and compatibility with both our existing HR System and a future Absence Management Service system. We would prefer a Health Portal approach — where managers can access their reports following Management Referral direct via a password.
— We would have specific requirements for management information and data on a monthly basis. Our requirements will be tailored with our successful Partner during an implementation phase.

Range: between 1 000 000 and 1 500 000 GBP
