North Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent CCGs commission health services for around 503,000 residents and are inviting expressions of interest from providers to deliver a consultant led Tier 3 Ophthalmology Service which will incorporate triage, see and treat, diagnose and manage eye conditions. This will serve as an alternative to hospital based treatment for the majority of patients being referred by GPs for Ophthalmology services. The service will offer local, accessible, high quality care that would allow for appropriate signposting. The service will integrate with local GPs, Optometrists and Acute Specialist Services and should also have full responsibility for all operational management, administrative, staffing and training requirements and all associated costs.
In summary, the CCGs wish to procure the following:
High quality, confidential ‘one-stop-shop’ Ophthalmology services which are clinically appropriate to be managed in a primary care setting.
Candidates wishing to be considered must register their expression of interest as stated below.
Organisations wishing to express an interest and provide additional procurement-specific information should provide the following details by email to firstname.lastname@example.org and Elizabeth.email@example.com by Friday 6.10.2017. The following information must be stated in the email: organisation name and address, contact name, telephone number, email address, website address, organisation type.
Organisations should also confirm their registration on the Midlands and Lancashire CSU Bravo Portal: https://mlcsu.bravosolution.co.uk. If not registered, organisations should follow the link and register on the portal.
