II.4)Short description of nature and quantity or value of supplies or services:
Guildhall Walk Healthcare Centre is located in Portsmouth City Centre and, since 2009, has provided two component services under a single contract: primary medical care services for registered patients; and a GP-led Walk-In Centre (WIC) service for both registered and unregistered patients. The contract has also stipulated additional service provision for homeless people and vulnerable groups within the city. The service has a registered raw patient population of 6,264 (as of January 2016).
The activity and associated finance of the WIC component of the historic contract was tendered and re-commissioned under a separate procurement in 2016. The continued provision of primary medical care services to the established registered list population is the subject of this Procurement.
The new contract will be secured through an Alternative Provider Medical Services (AMPS) contract and is expected to commence on 1.4.2017 for a term of 5 years, with the possibility of two optional 12 month extension periods.
The main objective of the Procurement is the identification of a suitably qualified and experienced bidder drawn from the public, private or voluntary sector (or a joint-venture combination thereof), to deliver primary medical care services that are fully consistent with the requirements of:
— the NHS Constitution;
— any relevant MHRA guidance, technical standards, and alert notices;
— the General Medical Council guidance on Good Medical Practice (2013);
— Medical Performers List entry requirements;
— And CQC requirements.
The Contracting Authority will undertake a fair, open and transparent procurement process as part of its commitment to achieving the development of high quality services which represent value for money and the wise use of public funds.
The scope of services to be commissioned through this Procurement has been developed by the Contracting Authority.
The services to be provided are as follows:
— Core primary medical care services (in accordance with the latest NHS Standard APMS contract)
— A ‘wait and see’ model of service provision whereby registered patients can access a GP and/or nurse without the need to make an appointment (for some or all of the opening hours)
— Extended hours access outside of core opening (i.e. Monday-Friday, 8:00-18:30), potentially providing early morning and late evening opening during weekdays, and Saturday morning opening at weekends. The successful bidder may wish to work collaboratively with other practices within the city in order to deliver extended hours provision
— Additional services such as Direct Enhanced Services (DESs) and Local Commissioned Services (LCSs) as commissioned by the CCG
— Engage in and deliver the requirements of the national Quality Outcomes Framework (QOF), or a local alternative if made available.
Estimated cost excluding VAT:
Range: between 3 500 000 and 5 000 000 GBP
