North of England Commissioning Support (NECS) is working for and on behalf of NHS England and NHS Improvement North West (the Contracting Authority) and under co-commissioning NHS Morecambe Bay Clinical Commissioning Group (the Commissioner), who are conducting a Request for Information (RFI) exercise in order to gain a better understanding of the capacity and appetite of the market to provide an Alternative Provider Medical Service (APMS) to be delivered at Windermere and Bowness Medical Practice.
The current service has circa 5 600 patients and a contract value per annum of circa GBP 493 000 per annum (exclusive of QoF, enhanced services and CCG commissioned quality scheme). The CCG is currently undertaking a review of A-typical populations and associated funding.
It is important to note that this PIN/RFI is not a call for competition and as such potential providers will need to express an interest in any future tender opportunity once a contract notice is published in Official Journal European Union (OJEU) and on Contracts Finder.
It should be noted that this PIN/RFI invites individuals and organisations to express an interest in this RFI exercise only, and it is NOT a pre-qualification questionnaire, and is NOT part of any pre-qualification or selection process. This PIN/RFI is intended as an awareness, communication, and information gathering exercise. An expression of interest is no indication of a commitment to participate in the RFI process nor does it infer any preferential or special status on those individuals and organisations who express an interest in the RFI exercise.
NECS is utilising an electronic tendering portal (In-Tend) to manage this RFI and as such interested individuals and organisations will need to register on the portal to access and return the RFI documentation.
It is free to register on the portal, which can be accessed at any time of day.
Should you have any queries, or are having problems registering on the portal, you should contact the eTendering provider by Email: email@example.com or by phone 0844 2728810 Website: https://in-tendhost.co.uk/nhsnecsu/aspx/Home
Helpdesk Support is available (Monday to Friday 8:30am to 5:00pm).

The RFI documentation will be accessible from 12:00 noon on 1 September 2020 and completed RFI responses must be returned by 12:00 noon 15 September 2020.
