The Devon & Cornwall Constabulary has a requirement for the Provision of Forensic Medical Examiners to attend locations throughout Devon and Cornwall for the examination of alleged victims of sexual assault and alleged child victims of abuse, assault, sexual assault and neglect.

The Department of Health defines non-emergency Patient Transport Services (NEPTS) as the ‘non-urgent, planned, transportation of patients with a medical need for transport to and from a premises providing NHS healthcare and between NHS healthcare providers’.

This encompasses a wide range of vehicle types and levels of care.

Devon is the third largest county in England, covering 2 534 square miles. The county has over 750 000 residents, with a higher proportion of older people than the national average. It is also 1 of the most sparsely populated counties, with few large settlements and a dispersed rural population. The transport network is limited which results in considerable travel times, proving a barrier to access for many residents and an operational challenge for Providers.

The NEPTS contract spans the area covered by Devon County which includes 1 local authority, 2 Clinical Commissioning Groups (NHS South Devon and Torbay CCG and NHS Northern, Eastern and Western Devon CCG) and 4 acute providers.

NEW Devon CCG is actively partnering with Devon County Council in a 3 year Total Transport Project, which will be examining synergies between the different strands of public-sector transport in Devon. Patient Transport in Devon is an integral part of that work and providers will be part of the multi-organisational Transport Forum chaired by Devon County Council.

We are seeking to tender the Non-Emergency Patient Transport Service (NEPTS) for all patients registered with a Devon GP. In constructing the tender we have taken steps to ensure that there is an attractive, clear and robust specification and workload for bidders to respond to.

— We have removed the bulk high volume car-journeys from the system by looking to let the Frequent-Attendees Car Service as a separate lot through Devon County Council's Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS).

— We have focused the NEPTS contract on the core ‘traditional’ PTS workload looking to utilise multi-use vehicles to deliver an efficient and effective service.

— Out of area patients and the smaller volumes between midnight and 7:00 will be let outside of the main NEPTS contract, through DPS, allowing bidders to choose whether they wish to add these parts onto the main NEPTS contract or not.

— A booking service in partnership with the Local Authority will deal with initial contact from the public and manage the first line of authorisation and eligibility

We are actively seeking flexible and solution-orientated companies who are keen to make a positive mark in the NEPTS market.

Our 3 key success factors to achieve from this procurement are:

1 — Provision of a quality, flexible and responsive service;

2 — Excellent communication to establish strong relationships with key stakeholders;

3 — Sustainability. We want to work with a provider who will become our partner in delivery of an improved system.

Further insight about the pressures we face, the challenges and the key drivers that move us can be found here in the joint strategic needs assessments for both CCGS.

Currently urgent care services are provided by a range of organisations in Devon, providing a number of different options for people to use. Some of these duplicate each other, or have a slightly different offer which makes it difficult for the public to be sure they are using the right service to meet their health needs. There is often a difference of opinion between the public and the service providers as to what constitutes an emergency or an urgent healthcare need. Working as a partner with providers, commissioners have a desire to develop a more integrated approach to urgent care which increases patient satisfaction and safety and delivers a cost effective model of provision. Working with providers commissioners expect to create the conditions to develop a more integrated approach to urgent care which increases patient satisfaction and safety and delivers a cost effective model of provision. The commissioners are keen to develop a lead accountable provider model for urgent care. We acknowledge there may be many options for the future model and partnerships, including single lead accountable providers, alliances, consortium's, single provider etc. We wish to do this to: — Create an environment which enables services to align themselves to reduce duplication of delivery and consistency of governance approaches. — Creates a better environment to align outcome indicators and reduce perverse incentives in the urgent care system for individual providers. — Give a single lead accountable provider (with its subcontractors) the ability to construct an overall pathway of care and incentives that provide the commissioner with the outcomes that they want. — Encourage collaboration in the urgent care landscape with the right levers and incentives in place. Providers can directly work together, supported by the contracts between them, to ensure the pathway is as efficient and effective as possible. The prime contractor model is sufficiently flexible to accommodate a range of payment mechanisms and incentives. — Meet the economic imperative to deliver significantly better health care outcomes for the same resource. — Allow commissioners to concentrate on outcome measures and not micro manage provider services. — Allow a more flexible approach to payment mechanisms. Further information can be found in the Urgent Care in the Community sections in the following documents: — Strategic Framework; — Case for Change; — Engagement Report. These documents provide the strategic direction for community services, including design principles, and therefore the context and ambitions that the Clinical Commissioning Group is setting out to achieve to best meet the needs of patients'.

Short Description. Outcomes to be delivered by the service. Outcomes to be delivered at a service contract level — In delivering this dual diagnosis contract, the provider will be helping to bring about recovery and independence for people using the service through acting as a member of a partnership arrangement to increase the recovery of people with dual diagnosis across Devon. The three ultimate service outcomes for these contracts that reflect this aim are: — People have engaged with any healthcare and training help that is needed in order to enable recovery. The expectation under this outcome is that the provider successfully applies their support hours to increase the individual's further engagement with multi-agency practitioners and any other services that enhance their opportunity for recovery, in accordance with their support plan. — People are able to recover independence with up to 9 months of help in the Tier 1 level of support and 18 months in the Tier 2 level of support (see descriptions in 4.10 — Method of Delivery and 7. — Volume of Service). It is acknowledged that people with dual diagnosis often have complex and chaotic life experiences. In this respect it is fully accepted that people using the service will experience difficulty with engagement, and that lapses and relapses along the journey back to independence will occur. The expectation under this outcome is that the provider works with the DPT Project Manager of Housing and Support to balance the needs of people that have been provided with a service for some time, with the needs of other people within any waiting pool that urgently need help. — People successfully complete support plans, and do not re-present in crisis at a later point. Monitoring of this requirement will be undertaken by the (DPT) Project Manager of Accommodation and Support jointly with the provider. This will be used to develop a better understanding of what providers — along with their multi-agency partners — could be doing to get the highest possible achievement on this outcome. The expectation is through partnership working with allocated workers that any changes to a persons needs and support plan are acted upon promptly and with due care and diligence. Outcomes to be delivered at an individual level. — In delivering this contract the provider will be helping to bring about positive, evidenced changes to the functionality of individuals, in areas of their life that are directly relevant to the prevention of and recovery from dual diagnosis. Key Outcomes for people using the service are: — An increase in the number of people in stable accommodation and reduced risk of homelessness; — A decrease in the levels of substance misuse; — A significant increase in peoples' independent living skills; — An increase in the number of people able to manage their own finances; — An increase in the number of people who have developed social networks and relationships; — An increase in the number of people who receive help at an early stage to avoid crises; — An increase in the number of people who have improved physical and mental health; — An increase in the number of people who have more choice and control over their lives e.g. to have gained confidence to self-advocate or be better able to deal with a benefits issue themselves; — A decrease in mental health hospital admissions and admissions to residential care. The service provider will support a recovery approach in the service by using the Mental Health Recovery Star (Appendix F) to set goals jointly with people using the service and to measure progress towards achievement of outcomes. By working with people on the above outcomes the following key areas will be evidenced: — People will have access to support and advice to set up and/or maintain their tenancy or accommodation; — People will have access to support at the point of need; — People will experience improved economic well-being; — People will have increased opportunities to access a range of community activities and; — People will experience improved physical and mental health; — People will have increased knowledge about services and organisations; — People will have increased social networks and links with their local communities; — People will have access to practical support and advice to help them maintain their home; — People will have increased skills to manage their finances; — People will have increased knowledge about how to keep safe; — People will have improved knowledge about how to access specialist services and support; — People will have increased confidence and skills to advocate for themselves; — People will have further developed and be able to maintain their independent living skills.
