The Trust is looking for an experienced CAD supplier with live deployments to provide CAD software across multiple sites using a single virtual CAD using the Trusts existing infrastructure/hardware. Being within the public sector the Ambulance Service must be responsive and flexible, reacting to changes, for example, legislation, working practices and reporting. Any solution and provider must be able to react to, support and match the organisations ability to respond urgently. Because there is a need to rapidly respond to change, the Trust will require the chosen Provider to offer and provide proactive, innovative and best value solutions. The CAD is required to enable the Trust operational processes which include (but not limited to): 1. Manage 999 incidents; 2. Manage patient events through to resolution; 3. Manage resources associated with the patient event, for example, ambulance and clinical response; 4. Interface with existing technology, which includes (but not limited) to: telephony and Mobile Data Terminals (MDTs); 5. Manage performance and report on current Ambulance Quality Indicators as defined by the Department of Health. The one virtual system will allow geographically separated Emergency Operations Centres (EOCs) to support each other if, for example, a significant spontaneous incident occurs within the Trust operating area, or if an EOC fails for any reason. The Trust can then be assured that there will be extra resilience in the EOC architecture to provide an excellent service to the public in the Trust area utilising resources beyond artificial county boundaries. Because the Trust is working within an economically challenging environment the investment in the solution and provider must have predictable pricing for the life of the solution, from implementation through to support and enhancement. The Trust will need to understand the Provider price drivers so future prices can be predicted. The Trust regularly reviews it service provision cost with other ambulance trusts to ensure it is offering value for money. The Provider will need to work with the Trust to ensure the services linked to the CAD are regularly reviewed to ensure efficiencies are realised. The chosen solution needs to be reliable with high levels of availability. There are significant financial implications for the Trust relating to non-performance. The Ambulance Service has a requirement to respond to the needs of the public which ranges from life threatening 999 emergency calls through to non-urgent patient transport. Any CAD has to be capable of operating 24 hours a day 365 days year to allow the correct clinical response to be made. Responding to the needs of the public and providing an excellent service is at the core of the Trust operations. The Ambulance Service is a highly reactive environment with ever changing challenges. Because The Trust needs to respond quickly to the needs of patients, commissioning groups and customers, it must be confident the Provider will respond at the pace required by The Trust. The Trust is relying on the Provider to have a full understanding of operating within an NHS Ambulance Service environment, and understand the current issues and challenges we face. At present, the demands on our service are increasing whilst the financial environment is reflecting the current national economic challenges. As an ambulance service we are here to serve the community that pays for it.

The East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust delivers patient focused care across 6 counties including Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Essex, Hertfordshire, Norfolk and Suffolk. With over 2,000 clinical staff the Trust strives to deliver the highest quality of care for all emergency, urgent and primary care patients. The Hazardous Area Response Team (HART) is a national project to ensure that Ambulance personnel are able to deliver live saving patient care to people who are injured or taken ill within a hazardous environment. Within the East of England there are two HART teams, both made up of 44 members of operational staff; therefore within the Trust there are 88 members of staff who will require new or regular on-going refresher training. The East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust (EEAST) is looking to create a call off order with one supplier, who will be able to provide training to allow staff to safely operate the Trust 4x4 and 6x6 vehicles both on road and on non-tarmac surfaces. Due to the operational needs of the Trusts 6x6 vehicle being used during the course, the training facility must be located no more than 25 miles outside of the East of England region (Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire, Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire and Essex). The contract duration will be three (3) years with the option to extend by up to two (2) further periods of twelve (12) months.

The Lower Thames Crossing (LTC) is a new road crossing of the Thames Estuary, east of London, between Essex and Kent with new infrastructure and operational arrangements to increase capacity and improve resilience on the Strategic Road Network. The existing Dartford-Thurrock crossing provides a vital link for many business travellers, haulage companies and holidaymakers travelling to and from Europe via the English Channel, as well as linking communities both north and south of the Thames. However, over recent years traffic volumes have increased and the crossing now regularly exceeds its original design capacity of 135 000 vehicles a day. Congestion and delay are major problems, and conditions are expected to get worse in future. Therefore the Lower Thames Crossing scheme is exploring 2 options to relieve the stress on this link. The LTC is a technically challenging project and although the crossing type and location will not be decided until early 2016, we are looking for a Technical Partner to provide leading expertise in the key disciplines outlined below in order to ensure successful delivery of this high profile project. This project gives a potential supplier the chance to be involved in a team who are working to deliver a 2 500 000 000 GBP - 5 000 000 000 GBP scheme which will be 1 of Highway England's biggest projects. The Technical Partner will need to demonstrate extensive experience in the development and delivery of large complex transport infrastructure schemes in the current UK planning environment. This includes being able to provide strong leadership, excellent technical capability and proven expertise in the design of and construction of large bridges, immersed tube and bored tunnels. This is a long term appointment, likely to be in excess of 10 years, and required to support an accelerated delivery schedule. The successful Technical Partner will be required to work in collaboration with multiple partners to; — Provide and demonstrate expertise in all relevant river crossing types in order to accelerate the delivery schedule and able to provide all required capabilities without compromise. — Provide design leadership and technical expertise in the preparation of preliminary designs (including surveys and sampling), Environmental Impact assessments (EIA) and other technical documentation to support an application for the relevant permissions / consents. — Manage the pre-application engagement with the Planning Inspectorate (PIN) and develop / manage the application (likely to be a Development Consent Order (DCO)) including technical stakeholder engagement and pre application consultation process. — Progress the procurement of its works contractor or multiple contractors in parallel with the completion and submission of a DCO application. Provide a seamless transition in to delivery immediately following award of the DCO and the associated consents. — Provide assurance, supervision and coordination of the activities of contractors. — Ensure liaison with Network Operations and assure the technical elements of the Delivery Phase ( Design and Construction). — Develop illustrative / reference design proposals to enable procurement of 1 or more main contractors and essential advanced or enabling works regardless of the procurement or funding route.

In accordance with the Trust’s strategic objectives the East of England Ambulance Service continues to train significant numbers of student ambulance paramedics, as well as supporting existing staff in pre-professional grades to progress to registration as paramedics. The success of staff on these pathways supports key Trust priorities in seeking to increase our capacity to deliver high quality patient care. We are also working in partnership with HEIs to deliver placements for BSc student paramedics across East of England. The East of England Ambulance Service strives to deliver a supportive environment in which staff can develop through educational programmes and work-based practice. The Trust is looking to enhance is mentorship capacity to be able to offer a high level of support for staff in training towards registration as paramedics. The East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust (EEAST) would like to run a Higher Education Level 5 non-credit/ Level 5/6 15/20 credit Mentorship (Paramedic Educator) programme for between 140 and 200 Paramedics during the financial year of 2016/17. A further 200 may be trained on the programme in the following two financial years (2017-18 & 2018/19) on a call off basis. Three Pathways are proposed, with two being credit bearing/non-credit bearing with two contact days. The third pathway would be delivered online only. Each pathway should be a 12 week learning course. It is important for the Trust that a high level of flexibility and support is built into the programme offered by the provider. This flexibility will be discussed and agreed with the successful provider. Each cohort will be for 20 staff. Delivery should start as soon as possible from September 2016 and complete by the end of April 2017. The provider should serve each of EEAST’s Localities (Bed & Herts; Essex; Norfolk, Suffolk & Cambs). EEAST is open to the potential of HEIs working together to deliver the programme across the Localities.
