Exclusive: Attain win Milton Keynes contract management services tender

Milton Keynes Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) has awarded its contract to manage the organisation’s contract management services to independent provider Attain.

The three-year contract covers around £168 million of activity per year for the CCG across the acute, community and mental health spaces. There is an option for a two year extension to the contract.

Attain director Chris Walker (pictured) said: “We are thrilled to be awarded this contract with Milton Keynes CCG and look forward to working in partnership with them. Our expertise is our ability to build strategic relationships between providers and commissioners, ensuring money is spent wisely, maintaining high standards for patients while keeping down costs for taxpayers."

He added: “This is an important step in the development of the business, as we provide commissioning support services to an increasing number of CCGs across the country.’’

Founded in 2011, Attain provides commissioning support services to CCGs and local authorities. Its 60 employees are a mix of people with private sector and NHS backgrounds.
