Capita, Optum and private sector consortium selected for lead provider framework

NHS England has announced which organisations have made it onto its Lead Provider Framework to offer support services to clinical commissioning groups.

Capita Business Services, Optum and the MBED consortium, which is made up of Mouchel, BDO, Engine and Dr Foster, were the only private providers to be chosen of the seven non-NHS organisations shortlisted last year.

All three were listed to provide end-to-end support services, while Optum and Capita were also selected for the list of providers of medicine management services too.

The lead provider framework is designed to provide clinical commissioning groups (CCG) with a small number of NHS-accredited firms to help them run their commissioning processes.

NHS England intends to cut bureaucracy with this method by encouraging CCGs to use the listed providers when the current service level agreements between CCGs and commissioning support units (CSUs) run out. Many of them are due to end in April 2016 and must be openly tendered out due to EU law.

NHS England anticipates that between £3 billion to £5 billion of services will be procured through the framework as a result.

Bob Ricketts, director of commissioning support services (pictured), said: “I’m delighted about the range of quality providers that have made it onto the framework. I genuinely believe that these organisations have brought together the best services in the market to offer commissioners everything they need to deliver the vision of the ‘Five year forward view’.
