Digital Capability for Health is now live

Following close collaboration with NHS Digital in its design and development, we are pleased to announce that our Digital Capability for Health framework (RM6221) is now live.

Our Digital Capability for Health framework framework is designed to help public health and social care organisations to meet their specific needs in developing digital solutions such as electronic referral services, care records and screening services.

Twelve suppliers, 4 of them small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), have been awarded a place on the framework. Along with their supply chain of mostly SMEs, they all have technical capabilities and vast experience in the health sector in delivering high quality services; from defining and developing digital applications to ongoing improvements of live services.

In addition to NHS Digital, other organisations like NHSX, NHS Business Services Authority (NHSBSA) and Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) helped to evaluate  bidders’ framework applications to select the 12 best suppliers to deliver the services.

Robert McMillan, Commercial Director at NHS Digital yesterday said:

Crown Commercial Service (CCS) and NHS Digital have productively collaborated to deliver Digital Capability for Health, blending our organisations’ expertise of the digital market and specialisms in awarded large scale framework agreements. We are thrilled with the result and pleased to welcome 12 strong suppliers with leading expertise across the digital lifecycle and look forward to developing relationships with these suppliers and their supply chains to further strengthen our delivery capabilities.

The framework agreement will run for 4 years with no option to extend. 

We anticipate that health sector organisations will use this agreement for developing digital solutions to support the continuing government response to COVID-19 and EU Transition as well as help people to access public services easier and more efficiently.
