Amendement notice to Intermediate Minor Oral Surgery (IMOS) services contract start in London

This is not a live procurement advert. This is an amendment notice to advise the market that due to very high numbers of bidders interested in this procurement there have been some delays to our original timeline. This has resulted in the service commencement date moving from 27th November 2017 to 1st April 2018. Current contracts are being extended and this change was unavoidable. Should you wish to discuss or raise a concern regarding this amendment, please contact and you are reminded of your rights and time frame associated with any formal challenge. The service is for level 2 Oral Surgery as defined by the Guide for Commissioning Oral Surgery Services and Oral Medicine as "a procedural and/or patient complexity requiring a clinician with enhanced skills and experience who may or may not be on a specialist register. This care may require additional equipment or environment standards but can usually be provided in primary care. Level 2 complexity may be delivered as part of the continuing care of a patient or may require onward referral. Providers of Level 2 care on referral will need a formal link to a specialist to quality-assure the outcome of pathway delivery". The published financial envelope for this service includes a 25% increase to reflect an estimated level of work currently undertaken by our secondary care providers. Bidders should review the tender documents for more information. We are working with our secondary care providers in order to make the shift from level 2 oral surgery being delivered from secondary care into primary care. It is anticipated that many of the awarded contracts may grow in size as a result of this action; it is envisaged that the primary care activity may increase by up to 25% over the lifetime of the contract. For the avoidance of doubt, while this is the intention, this transfer from secondary to primary may not take place during the life of this contract. The 'Lot' structure has been described below: Lot 1 Hillingdon Lot 2 Ealing and Hounslow Lot 3 Westminster, Hammersmith & Fulham and Kensington & Chelsea Lot 4 Camden & Islington Lot 5 City & Hackney Lot 6 Tower Hamlets and Newham Lot 7 Brent and Harrow Lot 8 Barnet Lot 9 Enfield Lot 10 Haringey Lot 11 Waltham Forest and Redbridge Lot 12 Havering and Barking & Dagenham Lot 13 Greenwich and Bexley Lot 14 Bromley Lot 15 Southwark and Lewisham Lot 16 Croydon Lot 17 Lambeth and Wandsworth Lot 18 Sutton and Merton Lot 19 Kingston and Richmond Each contract award will be based on the Lot applied for. The Commissioner intends to award one contract for each of the Lots described above; however, the service can be provided from more than one site in each Lot. This is not a live procurement advert. This is an amendment notice to advise of delays and provide the opportunity to discuss
