Outsourced Clinical Services

Framework Agreement Description

The outsourced clinical services framework provides an OJEU compliant route to market for approved organisations to procure quality, value for money outsourced clinical services. The framework allows approved organisations to retain capacity planning in-house and ensure patients can be seen within suitable and compliant timeframes and help reduce waiting lists. Approved organisations will be able to provide additional clinical capacity by allowing patients to be seen and treated at the alternative providers own facilities.

The framework was tendered under the 'Light Touch Regime', meaning there will be an opportunity at extension to re-open the award and add further providers to the framework.
