Lincolnshire County Council is carrying out a tender for the supply of community equipment on behalf of the Council and its joint commissioning Health partners. This Integrated Community Equipment Service (ICES) includes but is not exclusive of the following provisions:
— Source, procure, store, deliver / supply and install equipment;
— Service, maintain, collect, decontaminate, refurbish, recycle equipment;
— Provision of on-site technical advice and support to health and social care clinicians;
— Monitor and maintain stock levels to meet prescriber and end-user needs.
The type of equipment varies but will include Complex Aids for Daily Living (CADLs) such as beds, hoists, pressure care equipment and specialist bathing equipment plus smaller aids e.g. toileting and mobility equipment etc. The ICES is also expected to include other service elements to be delivered within the life of the contract including Telecare services (equipment and monitoring), minor adaptations i.e. provision and installation of handrails, and wheelchairs. It is the Council's intention that self-funders will also be able to access this contract. Given the continued pressure and increasing demand within the health and social care environment, a key priority for commissioners is securing value for money and where possible cost savings.
