The recently announced Clinical Communications Procurement Framework was fast tracked through an accelerated OJEU process, which was completed in just 14 weeks. It’s designed to support NHS organisations with dedicated clinical facing communication and tasks management tools, to accelerate the adoption of proven technologies and to phase out pagers by the end of 2021.

Didn’t get onto the framework? NHSX say they don’t want to shut-down innovation by locking suppliers who aren’t currently on the framework out of the market, and thus are looking at how they might open it up again.
The first 12-month licence costs will be made via the NHS England and NHS Improvement regional teams. The process of allocating funding will be managed through the Regional Directors for Digital Transformation in each area. You can find out more about the regional teams on the NHSEI website. Details of the bid process and the bid template are on the framework section of the NHSX website.
