This procurement is for an improved Stoma service, which aims to deliver a cost-effective prescribing service for the supply of stoma appliances and accessories to patients as well as optimal clinical management and education to promote self-care; in consideration of patients’ physical and psychological needs throughout their stoma journey. While the service may include CCGs from across the Cheshire and Merseyside region, it is anticipated that the service will cover an initial tranche of CCGs, however potentially this service may expand to cover further CCGs within the Cheshire and Merseyside geography. It is anticipated that the contract will be implemented in two phases with a degree of uncertainty around Phase 2 at this time, which will be worked out during Phase 1. Therefore the maximum financial value is for the total number of CCGs over the life of the contract including extensions and expansions is estimated to be between GBP 3.7 and GBP 6.1 million. A clear picture of the value associated with the first tranche will be provided to bidders, however, due to the changing NHS landscape we are unable to confirm at this time the total value of the final contract which we anticipate will sit within the range provided.
