NHS Guildford and Waverley CCG wishes to commission Adult Community Health Services for the adult GP registered population to ensure high quality and innovative service provision across Guildford and Waverley. Community services are intended as an alternative to hospital-based outpatient services where non-complex acute and chronic conditions can be seen for clinical assessment, diagnostics and treatment in a community setting. This is in line with GWCCG’s strategic commissioning intentions to ensure that high quality care is delivered as close to the patient’s home as is appropriate. GWCCG has a clear vision for the development of a comprehensive and fully integrated model of health and care provision to our local population. Central to this vision is the development of excellent integrated community services, working under the leadership of Primary Care to provide a holistic health and care response genuinely tailored to the needs of a specific individual. Our new model of care, which will continue to evolve from 2017 onwards, focuses on the creation of an organised, coordinated and effective out of hospital provider environment that is seen as the main conduit for meeting a person’s health and care needs. Through this procurement process, NHS Guildford and Waverley CCG is seeking a provider to deliver ‘out of hospital’ services that will work with the CCG and other key partners to deliver the highest quality healthcare for the population of Guildford and Waverley. As the NHS continues through the process of change, GWCCG wish to work with providers who have the capability to embrace change and continually support and motivate their workforce towards innovative service delivery. The transformation of our community services is a key step in achieving this model of care. Historically, community services have been provided by a large number of fragmented and separate teams across the primary, acute, community and social sectors. It is our ambition to move away from this paradigm by instead creating integrated community health and care services that are capable of delivering a flexible and wide ranging service response based on clinical need, whenever it is required. GW CCG is holding a bidder briefing event on 13 April 2016. Details of how to register to attend are attached to this notice.
