Countess of Chester Hospital issues £100m framework to support NHS digital transformation

The Countess of Chester Hospital NHS Foundation Trust’s Commercial Procurement Service wants to establish a framework agreement to enable and support digital transformation within the NHS and wider public sector.

It hopes the framework will enable a provider to supply both “agile technological solutions” and also “harness and deliver scalable solutions developed at a local level, under a managed service.”

According to the tender, the framework seeks to put in place “a supplier of managed services technology provision (including hardware and software as appropriate), and technical expertise provision to enable clients to deliver exceptional service through the use of world-class digital technology.”

The tender says the supplier will need to provide clients with a single point of access to supply technology related managed services in order to streamline related pathway, supply chain and support services, including the provision of new solutions and support and/or the management of existing solutions.

The supplier will also provide technology and informatics services supporting client organisations in delivering the Five Year Forward View (FYFV) technology vision and other digital transformation projects.

The Trust wants the eventual supplier to support and guide clients in their digital roadmap to ensure system interoperability and paper-less environments through the implementation of coordinated plans and overall management of the supply chain in order to meet required outcomes.

The Trust said the scope and purpose of the framework is to enable and deliver efficient integrated health and social care services through the best use of digital technology, predominantly across the NHS and local authority sector.

This framework will run as a single supplier agreement with no further competition required once awarded. It will run for a four year term, though the authority pointed out that call-off contracts may exceed the four-year period if contracts are awarded within the framework agreement’s term.

Applications for the tender are due to close on September 28.
