Tenders, procurement and contracting

NHS Liverpool CCG is responsible for commissioning and procuring – or buying – healthcare services from hospitals and other providers, to meet the needs of local people.

This involves contracting with existing service providers and, when required, carrying out competitive tendering processes - for example, when we think that this would allow us to improve services for patients, or when we are legally bound to do so because of procurement regulations.

The CCG has a clear responsibility to make decisions and commission services in a fair, transparent and open way, to ensure we are getting value for money and meeting the needs of our population. We want the people of Liverpool to have a wide range of accessible, high quality and easy to use services to help them stay healthy and improve their wellbeing.

Commissioners must publish details of contract sanctions due and applied to each of their major providers for failure to achieve national standards. You can view contract sanctions for Liverpool CCG under "Publications" or by clicking here.

We are continually looking at the services we commission, to find ways to improve efficiency and quality, extend choice and access, and improve patient experience.

We also keep a register of forthcoming procurements

You'll find information on the NHS Standard Contract on the NHS England website.

The Primary Care Interim Provider policy outlines the approach that will be taken by NHS Liverpool Clinical Commissioning Group should a situation arise that requires the appointment of an interim provider to maintain Primary Care Medical Service delivery on a short term basis in situations where time limits do not allow for a comprehensive procurement exercise to be undertaken.
