South Cheshire CCG decommissioned the community services provision from East Cheshire Trust on grounds of quality of service delivery. They initiated a tender process requesting interested parties to bid to be the most capable provider. They would then work with the most capable provider on the fine details looking to award the contract. We assisted the GP federation join with Mid Cheshire Foundation Trust and Cheshire and Wirral Partnership Trust form a tripartite partnership that was chosen as the most capable provider and has gone on to win the bid.
Staff are Tupe’ing across to the new organisation CCICP (though they will be employed by MCHFT) and we continue to help represent the GP federation.
