Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust seeks to establish a Framework Agreement with a range of economic operators for the supply of Prosthetic Goods and Prosthetic Consumables to the Specialist Rehabilitation Mobility Centre (SMRC) in Preston:

SMRC provides specialist wheelchair and Prosthetic services throughout Lancashire and South Cumbria and also provides Orthotic services locally. The centre currently has 23 000 wheelchair, 2 000 Prosthetic and 12 000 Orthotic (NHS) patients of all ages with long-term mobility problems. A comprehensive service is provided for Upper and Lower amputees, which includes counselling, assessment, supply, modification and maintenance/repair of equipment issued.
The Centre's Consultant in rehabilitation medicine leads the multidisciplinary Prosthetic Service Clinical Team; Prosthetists, Orthotists, Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists, Nursing Staff, Rehabilitation Engineers, Psychologist and Administration Staff. Specialist prosthetic clinics are provided at the SMRC in Fulwood and at Kendal by the centre's multi-disciplinary team.
The SMRC is committed to ensuring that patients are given the opportunity, within the limitations of equipment issued, to achieve their full potential in terms of mobility and independence. To support this commitment, LTHTR wish to access a wide range of safe, clinically effective and high quality products and consumables from prosthetic suppliers which offer LTHTR value for money
There may be a requirement in the future to open this framework to other NHS Trusts who represent other SMRC centres in England (Plymouth, Isle of Wight and Gillingham).
