NHS Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin ICB are seeking tenders for a provider of GMS services, Essential Services, Quality and Outcome Framework (QOF), Enhanced services – Locally Commissioned (LCS) and Directed Enhanced Services (DES) including the Primary Care Network DES in the village of Highley, South Shropshire.

Highley (WV16 6) is a rurally isolated large village in South Shropshire, 7.5 miles to the
south of Bridgnorth with a population of 3,735 people.

The provider is required to play a key role in the emerging partnership work with local
providers, partners and stakeholders that is aiming to enhance and improve the delivery
of health and care services from an integrated health hub within a key community
building in the heart of this rurally isolated and deprived community. This partnership
work involves all key partners and stakeholders including the PCN, the ICB, the hospital
trust, community services and the local community.

An essential requirement of this contract is the need for the provider to deliver services from the Village and to maintain a strong physical presence within the community. In the short term, there is the opportunity to utilise the existing practice premises (subject to negotiation with the landlord) and in the longer term there is the exciting potential of the integrated health hub.
