Non-obstetric Ultrasound Service - Provider Framework

Planned Care

North East Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Group (NELCCG) hereby invites applications from suitably qualified and experienced providers to be incorporated onto a Framework to provide a local, direct access, non-obstetric ultrasound service for a 3 [three] year period.

The aim of the service is to aid early diagnostics and avoid the need for unnecessary referral into services in secondary care..

The provider must ensure that services are provided in an environment that promotes access and ensures a safe and equitable service.  This includes ensuring that there is adequate privacy and confidentiality.

The provider must also demonstrate how it plans to enhance partnerships and provide an integrated service that works across agencies within North East Lincolnshire, providing a seamless approach. 

The intention of NELCCG is to award a number of contracts under a framework agreement which will allow the provider to be registered on the CCG local E-referral system and be a nominated provider for delivery.
