QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
Q: Why is the CCG going out to procure community services?
A: The contract with the current provider of community services, Bromley Healthcare, is ending in September 2017. We are required to go through a procurement process for these services. As a public healthcare body, the CCG is subject to the EU Procurement Directive and we need to ensure healthcare services in Bromley are procured though a fair, equitable and transparent process. It is also a great opportunity to review what community health services are required in Bromley and how they need to be delivered in order to meet current and changing health needs, providing integrated, co-ordinated and personalised care for patients.
Q: What are the benefits for patients?
A: The interests of our patients are and will remain fundamental to our decision-making regarding the commissioning of health services. Our aim through this procurement is to improve the quality, accessibility and value for money of community services available to Bromley patients through a process of service review, best practice procurement and robust contracting, including innovative ways of working
