Bidder shortlist unveiled for historic Cambridgeshire contract

Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) has unveiled the shortlist of bidders for its landmark integrated older people’s services contract.
 
The four parties include:
 
·         Accord Health (a consortium of Interserve and Provide, formerly Central Essex Community Services, with North Essex Partnership Foundation Trust as mental health lead).
 
·         Care for Life (Care UK with Lincolnshire Community Health Services NHS Trust and Norfolk Community Health & Care NHS Trust)
 
·         Uniting Care Partnership (Cambridgeshire & Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust with Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust)
 
·         Virgin Care.
 
The Integrated Older People’s Pathway & Adult Community Services contract will involve the coordinated delivery of services for the elderly across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough. The CCG published tender documents last summer indicating the full value of the tender to be between £700 million - £800 million over five years.
 
The organisations will now go on to the next stage of the procurement process, in which they refine their initial proposals and the public are consulted. The preferred bidder will be named in September 2014 with the contract starting January 2015.
 
Commenting on the shortlist, Dr Neil Modha, chief clinical officer at the CCG, said, “It is important to stress that whoever is awarded this NHS contract…will remain NHS-funded, provided under an NHS contract and free at the point of delivery.”
