Bristol tender bidders announced

A partnership of AWP and Bristol voluntary groups is one of five groups shortlisted by Bristol Clinical Commissioning Group to be invited to submit detailed proposals to provide new community based adult mental health services.
Our Trust has teamed up with nine Bristol based groups to create a strong bid which will ensure a seamless approach to care in the city and which can deliver  the changes and improvements sought by commissioners. Our partners are Second Step, Missing Link, Brunelcare, Off the Record, SARI, Nilaari, Wellspring, Knowle West Health Park and Southmead Development Trust.
The next step will be for the five bidders to go through to the month long "dialogue" stage of the process, when they will discuss details of their proposals with the CCG before submitting detailed bids in January 2014.   The successful bidder will be awarded the contract by May 2014 and it is intended the new services will be implemented from autumn 2014.
It is of course great to get to this stage but our goal is to win the tender and we face stiff competition from the other shortlisted partnerships:

  • 2gether NHS Foundation Trust with Big White Wall, Elim Housing and Volunteers Bristol
  • The Priory Group with Surrey and Borders NHS Foundation Trust
  • South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust, with Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust and Beacon UK
  • United Health UK with Berkshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust, Richmond Fellowship and Care UK

We firmly believe that the best outcome for the people of Bristol will be for our Bristol focused partnership to be successful because it provides a local, integrated and high quality service.
