NHS Chorley and South Ribble and NHS Greater Preston Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) on behalf of the Lancashire Place Based Partnership intend to source 41 general nursing intermediate care beds, 24 of which are expected to require rehabilitation.
This will enable a cohort of patients to be transferred from hospital into a registered nursing home who need an extended period for discharge plans to be agreed and community support provided.
The CCGs are planning to commission the beds with several providers with up to 5 beds within each registered nursing home dispersed across Central Lancashire. We will accept bids from registered nursing homes located within the Greater Preston and Chorley and South Ribble areas.
This is a fixed term arrangement with the intention of the beds being available from the 1st November 2021 and for contracts to be in place until the end of March 2022.
The capped financial envelope for these services is circa £1.1m (capped at £1,200 per bed per week, exempt of VAT) for the contract duration (22 weeks). (£1,200 per bed per week includes any 1:1 isolation requirements that may be required).
The contracts will be paid on an 80% block arrangement, the remaining 20% of the contract value will be paid on a tariff basis based on occupancy.
