Three providers have been announced as the finalists in the procurement processes for a 'multispecialty community provider' in Scarborough and Ryedale.

East Coast Health Options Community Interest Company has partnered with North Yorkshire County Council to go up against County Durham and Darlington NHS Foundation Trust and Humber NHS Foundation Trust, in a bid for the contract worth £80.6m.

The contract will run from 3 April 2018 for a maximum of seven years.According to NHS Scarborough and Ryedale CCG, the contract will look after community services such as physiotherapy, occupational therapy and a community response team but not primary medical services.

Dr Phil Garnett, chair of the CCG, said: ‘We want to see all of our community services organised around the communities where people live and the GP practices people use, and we want to work with partners who share our vision and can overcome barriers to joint working.

 

‘We envisage enhanced prevention and self-care at the core of our model and, if care becomes necessary, timely, integrated coordinated care and support.'

The services are currently provided by York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, which decided not to take part in the procurement process.

NHS Scarborough and Ryedale CCG Chief Officer, Simon Cox, said: 'We recognise the Trust’s decision may create additional uncertainty, both for patients and for its hardworking and committed staff who currently deliver services in our community.

'As a result, we wish to reassure patients, carers, staff and other stakeholders that in evaluating the procurement exercise, we will take into account a number of factors, including continued well led service delivery, improvements for patients and carers, the need to protect the employment rights of any existing staff who might transfer to a new provider and the requirement to have a well-planned, safe service transition.'
