North East Essex Clinical Commissioning Group wishes to invite suitably qualified and experienced providers to submit tenders for the provision of an integrated dermatology service.

The overarching aim of the integrated dermatology service in north east Essex is to provide patients with a high quality, safe and efficient service which improves outcomes, making best use of available resources. The Contract duration is 5 years and 9 months with the option to extend for a further 2 years. To access and download the procurement documentation including the service specifications, potential Bidders are invited to login to the electronic procurement portal: https://attain.force.com/s/ Click on “Register” and follow the on screen instructions. The deadline for ITT responses is 12:00 noon on 17.12.2018. Please note that the services and associated specification and prices, commissioned within this contract may be subject to review and change. Any changes to the contract shall be subject to discussion with the Provider to reach agreement on the scope of service change and local price in accordance with these provisions and relevant contract variation would be completed. The Provider will be asked to participate in the development and redesign of relevant pathways that may result from this development The rationale for a future review may include:

— the CCG’s intention is to work closer with the CCGs within the Suffolk and NEE STP footprint. Therefore the scope of the possible changes to be made to this contract shall relate to the potential introduction of a larger population to support the STP footprint (i.e. the contract and specification may be amended to also deliver a dermatology service to the Ipswich and East Suffolk and West Suffolk CCG populations), through a variation to the contract in accordance with Regulation 72 (1) (a) of the Public Contracts Regulations 2015,

— the contract being amended in terms of the original services supplied (in accordance with Regulation 72 (1) (a) of the Public Contracts Regulations 2015, where following assessment of the reasonable alignment of out of hospital services it is identified that it is logical for additional services to be delivered in conjunction with this contract and by the Provider or one of its sub-contractors, both in terms of actual service delivery and to avoid duplication of costs. These services may include but are not limited to other services and specialties formally delivered in a secondary care outpatient setting and any day case or outpatient procedures where it is foreseen that these services can be delivered more effectively as part of this contract,

— if it is found, following assessment, that it is no longer appropriate for any of the acute inpatient element and non-elective support to East Suffolk and North Essex NHS Foundation Trust (ESNEFT) to be included within the integrated dermatology service. The CCG therefore reserves the right to withdraw or change these elements of the contract in accordance with Regulation 72 (1) (a) of the Public Contracts Regulations 2015.
