NHS Arden and Greater East Midlands Commissioning Support Unit (Arden & GEM CSU) on behalf of Southern Derbyshire Clinical Commissioning Group (SDCCG) and NHS England (North Midlands) is carrying out an exercise to identify a caretaker provider for Meadowfields GP Surgery on a short term APMS Contract. Southern Derbyshire Clinical Commissioning Group (SDCCG) and NHS England (North Midlands) are looking for suitable qualified providers with an ability to deliver a GP Surgery service for up to 12 months (9 months plus 3 month notice period).
During the 12 month caretaking arrangement, it is envisaged that the long term future of the service will be determined through public consultation and, depending on the outcome of the consultation, possible re-procurement.
The practice has a current list size of approx. 11,000 patients and is provided from two locations:
The Meadowfields Practice - Chellaston
Fellow Lands Way,
The Meadowfields Practice - Allenton
Coleman Health Centre,
6 / 13 Coleman Street,
The identified provider will have the option to continue to provide services from this premise.
The Commissioners are looking for a modern, patient-centred model that is user friendly and culturally sensitive that considers all of the national and local public health targets.
The model will need to include provision of the following:
• Essential Services
• All Additional Services
• Dementia & Learning Disabilities
• Enhanced Services
• Opening hours and service delivery from 8am – 6.30pm Monday to Friday (except statutory bank and public holidays).
The full scope of the service can be found in the attached draft specification; it is essential that interested providers must be able to demonstrate an ability to mobilise to service provision within a short time frame. The Caretaking Service is due to Commence 1st January 2016.
