Community Audiology Services AQP (Coventry & Warwickshire) (1)

NHS Arden and Greater East Midlands CSU on behalf of NHS Warwickshire North CCG, NHS Coventry & Rugby CCG and NHS South Warwickshire CCG conducted an "Any Qualified Provider" process for suitably experienced and qualified providers of Community Audiology Services. The commissioners invited responses to the AQP from suitably qualified and experienced providers with the necessary capacity and capability (or a demonstrable ability to provide the necessary capacity and capability within the requisite timescale, which is notified to potential bidders in the invitation to tender (ITT)) to provide the range of Services as set out elsewhere in the ITT, in a safe and effective manner and subject to any conditions specified in the Contract or any tender documents issued in connection with the Procurement. The contract is for a period of 3 years with an option to extend for a further 2 years at the discretion of the commissioners. The successful provider(s) are expected to be fully operational for providing services from 1st April 2021. All providers who demonstrably met the qualification criteria, agreed to the proposed tariffs and agreed to sign the NHS Standard Contract (which is provided with the tender documentation) are awarded a contract. Providers are advised that the award of an AQP contract offers no guarantee of activity, and therefore no guarantee of income derived from the award of a contract can be offered. The commissioners reserve the right, at their total and sole discretion, to open new windows on this process with the intention of awarding new contracts under this AQP. This may be to address access inequalities in certain areas (in which case the AQP process may be restricted to a particular area or areas) or to enhance patient choice across the areas to which this AQP process pertains. However, the CCGs may re-open windows for any reason of their choosing. Full details can be found in the tender documentation.
