II.2.4)Description of the procurement:

Nationally there are approximately 416 000 people in the UK living in care homes the majority being over the age of 65 years. Many care home residents live with long term multiple health problems and also have ‘end of life’ needs requiring holistic care planning and delivery by skilled and experienced staff.

This specification is intended to outline the expected outcomes the CCG wants to see for individuals in nursing homes in receipt of NHS Healthcare funding.

Its contents provide an overview of what we would expect to see delivered in order that service users are provided for and supported to lead as fulfilling and holistic life as possible, and to die with dignity and respect.

This specification does not substitute for a service user’s care plan as it would be expected their care plan will be one which is individualised and tailored to meet their changing care needs, and should be considered in conjunction with this specification.


— to provide high quality care through experienced, competent, supported and trained workforce,

— to improve the service users’ health and well-being and ensure their safety thus reducing hospital admission,

— to have care needs met in a way that puts the service user at the centre,

— to provide good quality care that meets the required and expected standards of nursing home providers,

— to provide a clean safe environment for service users,

— to provide a calm and stable environment for service users,

— to establish effective links with and work in close collaboration with other health and social care services to support service users’ care.

Please note there will be a bidder event held at White Rose House on Thursday 18th July. Further details will be available at www.NHSSourcing.co.uk
