Prospectus – Recovery & Wellbeing
Community Mental Health and Wellbeing Services
Phase 1 Prospectus – Recovery and Wellbeing
The IOW Clinical Commissioning Group and IOW NHS Trust are pleased to announce that the first steps are being taken to implement our vision of future Community Mental Health and Wellbeing Services for the Isle of Wight.
In Phase 1, the CCG and Trust are seeking bids from the third sector to deliver the recovery and wellbeing elements of the future Community Mental Health and Wellbeing service, as an interim phase, from 1st May to 31st December 2019, while the full Wellbeing Service is commissioned and implemented.
The Phase 1 Prospectus is a forerunner to a comprehensive procurement (Phase 2) of the new Community Mental Health and Wellbeing Service, which will be operational by the end of 2019.
The Prospectus aims to create an opportunity for a wide range of potential providers to come forward and work collaboratively to provide an interim approach to some key elements of the service, including providing out of hours support for those experiencing mental health crises and delivering wellbeing services. By so doing, the aim is to develop the market and provide the opportunity for providers to demonstrate their capability in delivering these services with the opportunity for bidding for further contracts for the full service later in the year.
While we strongly encourage bids from consortiums or organisations working together in partnership, to harness their respective strengths and expertise, we would also welcome bids from organisations for one or more lots.
- A market testing event has been scheduled for Thursday 14th February 2019,
12.15 – 2.00pm, Hunnyhill Room, Riverside Centre, The Quay, Newport, PO30 2QR. This will provide an opportunity to be more fully briefed on the proposals and ask any questions.
- The closing date for applications is Friday 22nd March 2019 (12 mid-day).
We request that any parties interested in submitting a prospectus application, submit a non-binding expression of interest and any questions within two weeks of prospectus issue (by Friday 22nd February 2019).
