This Prior Information Notice is published as part of NHS Medway CCG's initial procurement and market engagement process.

The services are to be provided to the patients covered by NHS Medway CCG. Services must be provided from premises within the geographic area of Kent and Medway.

Due to the fluctuations in referral patterns, the contractual arrangement will be open to adjacent (i.e. other Kent and Medway) CCGs as a referral pathway in order to assist with maintaining service continuity for NHS Medway CCG patients and in turn adjacent CCGs. This will be on the basis that the adjacent CCG manage their own payment and referral process with the provider with no recourse to NHS Medway CCG other than the normal contractual monitoring requirement as lead commissioner.

Payment is based on individual completed diagnostic review and report.
