Health Education and Improvement Wales (HEIW) have responsibility for ensuring that the people and healthcare professionals of Wales benefit from a cohesive, consistent approach to education and training, and to workforce modernisation and planning.

HEIW is seeking to procure high quality Health Professional Education and Training Services in Wales to ensure sustainability within the NHS workforce in Wales and to ensure the individual Welsh Health Board’s Integrated Medium Term Plan workforce requirements are met.

A number of key objectives have been established and will be embedded into the new proposed contracts. These include:

— the need for inter-professional education (IPE), simulation and placement preparation to be embedded within the curriculum;

— distance learning to build digital skills in healthcare delivery and digital solutions to support students living in rural areas;

— widening access to students which includes lowering tariffs for a more inclusive entry, increased financial support for those from economically deprived areas;

— renewed contract management requirements including Regional Education Consortiums between the Education Provider, Local Health Board and HEIW to ensure the key themes and objectives arising from ‘A Healthier Wales’ are met;

— development of increasing numbers of placements within primary care, public health and social care settings, leading to a set percentage of student placements within these areas;

— centralised placement support and quality management led by HEIW;

— admissions requirements and quality monitoring measures, including Equality and Diversity;

— increased levels of Welsh Language skills in the health and care workforce.

Meeting these objectives will add significant value to student experience and future workforce of NHS Wales, ultimately improving the experience of services users/patients across Wales.

The services have been divided into 18 lots. Some of the lots have been divided into sub-lots. Detailed information in relation to the Lotting Strategy is set out in the Invitation to Tender (ITT).

The services to which this notice relates fall within Regulations 74 to 76 of the Public Contracts Regulations 2015 (Regulations).

Bidders should note that they will be required to enter into terms and conditions of contract as set out in the tender documents and that save for matters of clarification or consistency the contracting authority will not negotiate the terms.

As this is a procurement that falls under the LTR the contracting authority is proposing to use a procurement procedure, which is akin to the open procedure. Velindre University NHS Trust will award the contracting entity as hosts of NHS Wales Shared Services-Procurement Services. For the avoidance of doubt, HEIW will be entering into the contracts with the appointed providers.

All tender costs and liabilities incurred by bidders shall be the sole responsibility of the bidders. The contracting authority reserves the right to award the contracts in whole or in part.

The contracts to which this procurement relates, are funded via Welsh Government funding. Please refer to the draft contract terms and conditions for rights reserved to the contracting authority should the said funding cease or reduce.

The proposed contracts are due to take effect on or around 1 August 2021 and provide for a 12-month implementation period. Delivery of the services under the proposed contracts are to commence upon the anticipated services commencement date (that is, on or around 1 August 2022). No contract payments are payable in respect of the 12-month implementation period. Whilst bidders are free to submit bids in respect of any number of lots and/or sub-lots, in relation to lot 1 successful bidders will be limited to the award of no more than 3 sub-lots. Please refer to the ITT for further details. Bidders to note that each sub-lot and/or lot (where relevant) will be evaluated separately using the pre-disclosed evaluation criteria set out in the ITT.
