North West Regional SuppoRTT Course
Main contract details
Health Education England (HEE - the Commissioner) are putting out this notice as a PIN (Prior Information Notice) with a view to completing a Direct Award.
Please note the contracting authority intends to direct award the contract to Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
In 2018 Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS FT developed the regional SuppoRTT in order to upskill HEE North West (NW) doctors returning to training after a prolonged period of absence. Since then, the Trust has continued to develop the programme with trainee attendance increasing.
To maintain programme continuity and to upscale delivery through 3 hub sites across the North West which have been identified, it is proposed we retain the current provider for the next 3 years in order maintain a high level of service provision and support for doctors returning to training. This will enable us to fulfil HEE’s mandate and the actions of the NHS Long Term People’s Plan by supporting the delivery of excellent healthcare and health improvement to the patients and public of England through ensuring we have enough people with the right skills and experience in the right place at the right time and that staff have the time and support they need to care for patients.
If any provider has concerns with the commissioning intentions outlined within the published documentation, please raise this via the eTendering Portal in the first instance within 30 days of the date of this Prior Information Notice.
The closing date of this PIN is midnight on the 28th February 2021
