Supplementary Healthcare Services

01/08/2019 - 31/07/2023

This framework aims to support the increasingly popular use of inosurcing across the NHS to secure extra clinical capacity to meet increasing demand.

NHS Trusts, Mental Health Trusts and Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) have an increasing requirement for fully compliant supplementary solutions for the delivery of patient care, to help ensure Key Performance Indicators are maintained. 

This may involve working with external providers to assist in meeting this need both on NHS Trust premises and provider premises. 

This short to medium term solution allows trusts to retain capacity planning in-house and ensure patients can be seen within the trust. 

This agreement includes:

  • Provision of clinical services to assist with meeting waiting time targets and other pressures by utilising the services of other providers both on and off NHS premises
  • Whilst accessible by our usual customer base, we have been directly approached to provide this service by numerous NHS trusts
  • A four-year multi-lot framework agreement to cover a range of procedures under the Light Touch Regime.

This framework covers the below specialities (adult and paediatric).

  • Cardiology Diagnostics
  • Diagnostic Imaging
  • Endoscopy
  • ENT
  • General surgery
  • Gynaecology
  • Ophthalmology
  • Orthopaedics
