NCL ICB Personal Health Budget Procurement Market Event 7 September 2023 - Information for Stakeholders & Local Authority Commissioners

To whom it may concern,

This email is to inform you about the North Central London (NCL) Integrated Care Board Personal Health Budget procurement. The PHB procurement has been shaped and influenced by co-production and our NCL ICB Lived Experience Group.

The objective of the PHB procurement is to develop a PHB services directory. The directory will contain a range of Providers who have successfully completed the procurement exercise and can deliver PHB management (non-clinical) support to PHB Holders. This management support will help PHB Holders to have more choice and control regarding which Provider they choose to work with to organise and manage their PHB to achieve their health outcomes.

This Procurement will be divided into the following Lots.

Lot 1 - Personalised Care and Support Planning and Brokerage Services.
Lot 2 - Money Management Services.
Lot 3 - PHB Support Services.

Within Lot 3, the range of PHB Support Services are divided further into sub-Lots, as follows:

• Training Service for PHB Employers and Personal Assistants.
• Advocacy Services.
• Recruitment Support Services for PHB Employers.
• Third Party Service with On-going Management Support.
• Brokerage Support, Information and Guidance.
• Employer Insurance Services.

If you would like to learn more about the PHB procurement, a market event, will take place on Microsoft Teams Thursday 7th September 2023 between 1.30pm and 3.30pm. To register your interest in attending this market event, please visit Contracts Finder.

Please share this email with your networks and any agencies who might be interested in the PHB procurement.

Thank you for taking the time to read this email.

Many thanks and kind regards
