NHS Derby and Derbyshire Clinical Commissioning Group (DDCCG) (referred to as the Commissioner) is inviting suitably qualified and experienced providers to express interest in delivering the Service(s), by responding to this opportunity as required and described in this document, and within the published tender. NHS Arden and Greater East Midlands CSU (AGCSU) is acting as an agent for and on behalf of the Commissioner and is supporting the procurement process.
The Derbyshire NHS mental health service provider (Derbyshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust (DHcFT)) does not currently provide a PICU service for patients to access. DDCCG are seeking to procure PICU service(s) to meet the Derbyshire population need for psychiatric intensive care services.
The purpose of the Psychiatric Intensive Care Service is to provide high quality holistic care in a safe and therapeutic setting for service users in the most acute and vulnerable stage of illness. It is not for long term care.
To ensure care is contracted to meet this demand DDCCG wish to procure a block contract agreement for the provision of care and support for 9 Males (Lot 1) and 4 Females (Lot 2) for an initial period of 2 years (commencing from 1st February 2022 to 31st January 2024) with an option to extend for up to a maximum of a further 23 months (until 31st December 2025).
It is accepted that with fluctuating demand there may be times when additional service provision is required above the block contract agreements for both Lot 1 – Males and Lot 2 – Females. As such DDCCG wish to enter into a Spot-purchase (Lot 3) contract agreement where individual placements can be called-off against agreed terms and conditions. The Spot – purchase arrangement is for an initial period of 2 years (commencing from 1st November 2021 to 31st October 2023) with an option to extend for up to a maximum of a further 23 months (until 30th September 2025).
