cpvs
80560000

The Stabilisation Unit (SU) is the Government's centre of expertise and best practice in stabilisation. Set up to respond to the complex challenges of fragile and conflict afflicted states, it is a uniquely integrated civil-military operational unit, designed to be agile and responsive and well-equipped to operate in high threat environments. It combines in-house staff expertise with the ability to draw on a larger pool of civilian expertise for specialised, longer term or larger scale takings to work with countries on conflict, stabilisation and security issues. The Unit reports to the National Security Council and has a core staff from 12 government departments, police and three military services, many of whom join the unit on secondment on a 2 to 3 year basis. As part of the SU's unique role to deploy to FCAS states, the SU requires all personnel selected for deployment on behalf of Her Majesty's Government (HMG) to undertake specific pre-deployment training, currently for over 350 personnel a year. The appropriate selection, training and accreditation of suitable personnel is integral to the SU's ability to mitigate the foreseeable risks that its deployees may face in fragile and conflict affected environments around the world. A major piece of the SU's remit is its ability to deploy personnel both bilaterally to HMG platforms and to multilateral platforms with the EU, UN, and NATO in an agile and flexible manner. The UK's Stabilisation Unit (SU) is seeking partners to develop and manage a new training programme for deployees travelling and working in FCAS. The contract will be issued for 19 months initially. Suppliers are invited to complete the standard selection questionnaire, and a minimum of 5 and a maximum of 8 suppliers will then be invited to the second stage.

The Environment Agency has a requirement for the provision, servicing, maintenance and disposal of Chainsaws, Brush Cutters, Hedge Trimmers and Leaf Blowers. This is a national

requirement covering the Environment Agency, England. All equipment supplied is to be new.

 

This will replace the soon to expire, existing ground-care agreement which is a single sourced manufacturer led agreement. The Environment Agency is looking to contract with a supplier who can provide a single manufacturers supply of ground-care equipment.

 

All equipment, new and existing will require annual servicing as a minimum and ideally we would expect this to be managed by the successful supplier. The successful company will need to have sufficient service agents on a National scale to cover the requirement. The equipment should be serviced at the appropriate manufacturer dealership nearest to our depot location.

 

Please note - Where tools are used heavily they will require more frequent servicing. The supplier will be required to provide replacement parts for the equipment to short lead times to prevent delays in equipment operation.

 

The Environment Agency values health, safety, welfare and environmental impact very highly and the supplier must endeavour to reduce these impacts.These will include reduced vibration levels and fuel emissions.

cpvs
85100000

There have been a number of reports on how Urgent Care Services should be delivered including the NHS England publication ‘High Quality Care for all now and future generations’ and the Royal College of Physicians publication ‘Urgent emergency care — a prescription for the future’. The best practices highlighted in the reports and subsequently reaffirmed by the Keogh review ‘Transforming Urgent Care Services in England’ (November 2013) was that community based urgent care services should be coordinated in Urgent Care Centres. Redesign of Urgent Care Services is a key component of both Wolverhampton CCG's Urgent and Emergency Strategy and Primary Care Strategy. Service currently consists of: — 1 Acute trust A and E department — The Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust (New Cross Hospital); — 1 GP led walk in Centre — Showell Park; — 1 Nurse led walk in Centre — Phoenix Centre; — 1 Out of hours provider — Phoenix Centre; — West Midlands Ambulance Service; — NHS111; — Pharmacy; — Urgent GP appointments in Primary Care. There has been increased demand on services resulting in increased pressure on targets. The CCG underwent a consultation with the public to obtain their views etc. The outcomes of which were that they felt the existing system was too complex to navigate and that they wanted to see their own GP. This has led to the need to reconfigure the Urgent Care Service within the Wolverhampton region with the aim of creating a more streamlined approach with ‘signposting’ and is the driver for this procurement exercise. The service will cover the population of the City of Wolverhampton/South East Staffordshire and Seisdon Peninsula CCG: — Re-designed Urgent Care System in line with National best practice guidance; — Ensure best practice service provision; — Ensure service equality across all service user types and backgrounds; — Maintain agreed capacity at all times; — Ensure waiting times for access to the service are maintained; — Quality — patient-centred services delivered in a safe and effective manner and delivered through a learning environment that includes the training of healthcare professionals; — Value for Money and affordable. Estimated activity as follows: — Face to face 70 000; — Home visits 5 500; — Telephone 10 500. Please see draft service specification for full details of service.

Community Intermediate Care Flexi-Beds

 | Published February 29, 2016  -  Deadline April 13, 2016
cpvs
85100000

NHS Midlands and Lancashire Commissioning Support Unit, on behalf of Sandwell and West Birmingham CCG, intend to undertake procurement for Community Care Flexible Beds. The procurement’s objectives are to ensure that intermediate care capacity of 20 beds is secured within the West Birmingham geography of Sandwell and West Birmingham CCG to provide co-ordinated, flexible, health and social rehabilitative care to patients aged 18 and over. The care delivered must be provided in the most suitable environment for patients’ needs, to avoid unnecessary hospital admissions, and to relieve pressure from the local acute hospitals. The 20 beds must be located to ensure equity of provision throughout the West Birmingham geography. The service will deliver a new model of care which has been tested over the winter period of 2014/15 via the operation of a pilot from May 2014 which will be on-going until early 2016. Part of the new model differs slightly from traditionally commissioned intermediate care beds in order to be able to provide support to a wider group of patients by incorporating traditionally separate health and social intermediate care within one unit. This model has been proven to reduce delays in the transfer of care, shorten length of stay, and improve patient experience whilst creating flexibility within the community bed system. In addition, this model supports patients’ holistic needs alongside their rehabilitative needs to increase quality of life and keep patients within their normal place of residence for as long as possible through additional community support post discharge. GP cover (delivered or arranged by the provider) will assess all new patients within 72 hours, provide weekly ward rounds, and in-hours primary care cover. Out of hours primary care support will be provided by the CCG commissioned out of hours primary care providers. Requirements will be detailed in the service specification (Contract Particulars) together with eligibility criteria, minimum and maximum length of stay, and use of Care Plans with discharge strategy. The CCG requires one provider to provide 20 beds and deliver the service within one location within the West Birmingham geography of the CCG. This is due to the decommissioning of existing provision within West Birmingham, to ensure equity of intermediate care provision across the CCG geography, and to realise the benefits of economies of scale.
