£1bn deal to provide health services in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough 

Location: UK » East of England » CB

From the Guardian:

“The NHS is embarking on its single biggest outsourcing of services so far by inviting bids for a contract that will be worth between £700m and £1.1bn.

The value of the deal, to provide health services including end-of-life care for older people in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough, far outstrips the previous record of £450m, where Virgin Care now provides a range of NHS services across Surrey.

The contract is being offered by Cambridgeshire and Peterborough clinical commissioning group (CCG), the GP-led body that organises and uses its £850m annual budget to pay for the healthcare of its 860,000-strong population. It is worth £140m to £160m a year for five years, with a possibility of a two-year extension for good performance. It will replace six separate contracts the CCG already has with NHS organisations: four hospital trusts, a mental health trust and a community services trust.”
