VII.2)Information about modifications
VII.2.1)Description of the modifications
Nature and extent of the modifications (with indication of possible earlier changes to the contract):

Decision taken to extend framework agreement by 6 months to the 31 October 2020 given the high priority operational needs of NHS to procure these particular services at short notice during the current Covid-19 pandemic.

VII.2.2)Reasons for modification
Need for modification brought about by circumstances which a diligent contracting authority/entity could not foresee (Art. 43(1)(c) of Directive 2014/23/EU, Art. 72(1)(c) of Directive 2014/24/EU, Art. 89(1)(c) of Directive 2014/25/EU)
Description of the circumstances which rendered the modification necessary and explanation of the unforeseen nature of these circumstances:

These services are required over next few weeks and months to support NHS Trusts in response to Covid-19, and allowing this framework to end on 30/04/20 would be detrimental to any NHS Trusts who may need to contract for these services, often at short notice, at this challenging time. The Covid-19 pandemic meets the conditions outlined under 72(1) (c) of PCR 2015, and it is under those conditions that a modification to the duration of the framework is proposed to be made. In making such a modification it is understood that NOE CPC would be required to send a notice to OJEU for publication outlined under 72(3) of PCR 2015.

VII.2.3)Increase in price
Updated total contract value before the modifications (taking into account possible earlier contract modifications and price adaptions and, in the case of Directive 2014/23/EU, average inflation in the Member State concerned)
Value excluding VAT: 50 000 000.00 GBP
Total contract value after the modifications
Value excluding VAT: 56 250 000.00 GBP
