Description of the contract

NHS North Manchester, NHS Central Manchester and NHS South Manchester Clinical Commissioning Groups (the “Contracting Authority”) are inviting Expressions of Interest to deliver safe, cost effective Home Care services in the community. The Contracting Authority wishes to commission a new model of service delivery that best meets the needs of its local population across Manchester. The Contracting Authority is therefore organising a market engagement event and would like to invite interested potential providers to participate and is offering the opportunity to: • Share the current vision and commissioning intentions of the Contracting Authority; • Gather views and comments from a range of providers and interested parties; • Develop and grow providers to meet the needs of the future. The Contracting Authority is looking to create an unlimited framework (that does not restrict the number of providers) to maximise choice and capacity for North, Central and South Manchester and are therefore looking to create a framework that allows new providers to join during the lifetime of the framework. It is envisaged that the framework will be for 2 years with the option to extend for another 2 years. It is anticipated that the framework will be split into 3 Lots, one for each of the three areas of Manchester – North, South and Central. Each Lot will include specific prices relating to different levels of care needs: Low Risk, Medium Risk/Medium Complexity and High Risk/High Complexity,. The Contracting Authority will present its outline service and contracting model and invite feedback to help inform the Contracting Authority’s development of a final specification of its requirements through two market engagement events. EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST are now invited to attend one of the market engagement events which will take place at 10am on Wed 11th & Fri 13th February at a venue close to the centre of Manchester.
