Nursing Care and Befriending Preferred Provider Framework

The London Borough of Lewisham and Lewisham PCT wish to establish a Nursing, Care and Befriending Preferred Provider Framework (PPF). We are looking for three to five organisations to provide Nursing, Care and Befriending services for children and young people across the full spectrum of need. It is anticipated that organisations will be able to provide services across six core service areas, but it is also appropriate for organisations to define which of the six areas they wish to tender for.

The six core service areas are:

  • Paediatric nursing staff – to fulfil the direct nursing needs of the most complex packages.
  • Paediatric nursing staff – to provide out of hours end of life care to the most complex cases.
  • Carers trained to an advanced level.
  • Carers.
  • Befrienders.
  • Practical support in the home.

    Expressions of interest are invited from experienced, competent Nursing, Care and Befriending Agencies and other organisations, wishing to be considered for the PPF. Expressions of interest must be in writing (email, fax or letter), addressed to:

    London Borough of Lewisham, Procurement Team, 3rd Floor, Lewisham Town Hall, London SE6 4RU

    Tel: 020 8314 8133
    Fax: 020 8314 3092

    Tender submissions need to be returned by 12 noon, on Monday 12th October 2009, with contracts due to be awarded in December 2009.
