Girls Education South Sudan 2.

Procurement | Published May 30, 2017
cpvs
75211200

DFID South Sudan is developing a business case for a comprehensive education sector programme. This follows on from the 6 year Girls Education South Sudan (GESS) ending September 2018. This programme successfully led to a significant increase in girls registering and completing their primary education, supporting schools and the education sector to remain functional during the protracted crisis in South Sudan. The new programme will look to build upon these successes and gains while providing extended, new and innovative support to children and young people. The new programme will retain a focus on girls' education and seek to extend its reach to adolescent boys and girls with integrated livelihood, educational and resilience building components. It will also seek to build capacity and systems in the government education ministry with the intention of increased ownership of, and direct support to, the education sector. The project design will therefore reflect the need for significant stabilisation, peace building and development needs of South Sudan, with targeted interventions for particularly vulnerable groups — girls, marginalised youth and children and young people with disabilities.

Referral Triage Service.

NHS Midlands and Lancashire CSU | Published February 18, 2015
cpvs
85000000

NHS Birmingham Cross City CCG are in the process of developing a commissioning strategy for a consultant led referral triage service. As well as triaging referrals, this service is expected to also include education/up skilling of primary care and resourcing GP membership to manage activity as result of triage referrers providing advice and guidance for conservative management within general practice. Currently it is expected that the referral triage services will need to be able to cover a wide range of elective specialities. The potential number of referrals into this service could be circa 45 000 per annum across all specialities. Please note however that this indicative activity figure is currently a broad estimate and is subject to change. Following on from the PIN published in November 2014, Birmingham Cross City CCG is seeking to undertake additional market engagement to obtain feedback from the market in relation to certain aspects of the referral triage service potentially to be commissioned (Initially this may be as a 12-18 month pilot/short term contract). The service/pilot would aim to deliver following outcomes: — Improve quality of referrals through effective triage; — Eliminating inappropriate referral activity through patients being seen in the right setting first time; — Up skilling of general practice in specific disease areas through CPD and education supported by consultant feedback; — Improved patient experience and satisfaction by patient been seen in appropriate setting first time. — Production of robust intelligence to inform future commissioning decisions; — To test and evaluate proof of concept particularly in regard to the feasibility of managing the demand for hospital-based outpatient services. Service Description: The service/pilot would provide clinical assessment by experienced and specially trained consultants in defined specialities who would triage referral letters from general practice and then send back to the GP for conservative management or onward referral to secondary care, promoting choice through national Choose & Book system. To avoid delays, triage of referrals will be undertaken in 2 working days. To up skill in specific disease areas, provider will be required to support education and training of primary care in management of specific disease areas within general practice. Success Factors: The CCG expects that providers would have the following capability: — Independent and impartial clinicians who have experience and knowledge of UK healthcare system. — Have access facilities to accept referrals via choose and book and make onward referrals via Choose & Book. — Have functionality which allows interoperability of clinical system with CCG NHS IT systems to allow information flows efficiently and securely across the designated and implemented pathways using NHS N3 connection. — Ability to offer 7 day working.
