II.2.4) Description of the procurement

NHS Ipswich and East Suffolk Clinical Commissioning Group and West Suffolk Clinical Commissioning Group are looking to commission a Stroke Early Supported Discharge (ESD) Service across the Ipswich, East Suffolk (minus Waveney) and West Suffolk localities. NICE defines ESD as “a service for people after stroke which allows transfer of care from an inpatient environment to a primary care setting to continue rehabilitation, at the same level of intensity and expertise that they would have received in the inpatient setting.”

This service has been designed to support people after stroke, transferring care from an inpatient environment to a primary care setting to continue rehabilitation at the same level of intensity and expertise that they would have received in the inpatient setting. This service will maximise the rehabilitation potential for stroke survivors and lessen long term disability. A multi-disciplinary approach to service delivery will ensure that rehabilitation needs are met. Full integration of this service with other community provision is required to ensure that all interactions are delivered in a collaborative and co-ordinated approach.

The overall aims of the Stroke ESD service are:

— to deliver specialised rehabilitation through a multidisciplinary and co-ordinated approach as per RCP Clinical Guidelines for Stroke 2016,

— to providing a seamless pathway and continuity of care for the stroke survivor and their carers through the acute stay to rehabilitation and beyond,

— to ensure a whole system approach that raises standards across the stroke pathway aligned with National and local strategy and guidelines,

— to ensure the stroke survivor and family/carer have access to support, advice, advocacy and information throughout the care pathway and beyond,

— to ensure rehabilitation is delivered with a person-centred, goal planning approach

— to achieve maximum potential for independence in all aspects of the stroke survivors and their family/carer’s lifestyle while, acquiring the skills to adapt to new situations,

— to deliver a five days a week ESD service as standard, with 7 day working a future development

— to reduce premature admission into Long Term Care,

— to enable the stroke survivor to reach and maintain their optimum potential in their physical, psychological and social functional abilities,

— to Integrate Health, Social and voluntary organisations, ensuring a high quality pathway from transfer from the acute setting through discharge home and beyond.

Additionally, the contract may also be amended in terms of the original services supplied, where, following assessment it is identified that it is logical for additional services to be delivered in conjunction with this contract and by the provider, both in terms of actual service delivery and to avoid duplication of costs.
