First phase of GP IT Futures framework procurement finishes
NHS Digital has completed the first phase of the GP IT Futures procurement process – with the invitation to tender now closed.
73 suppliers have submitted tender applications to be on the new GP IT Futures framework, which will use better GP systems and shared open standards to unlock the potential of digital technology across the NHS.
The applications will now go through a rigorous assessment and assurance process, as the second phase of the procurement process gets underway.
Martin Warden, Director for the Digital Transformation in General Practice programme at NHS Digital, said:
“We are delighted that so many suppliers have submitted their applications to tender to be on the new GP IT Futures framework. It is great to have so many companies who share in our vision to provide GPs with the best possible tools and services, at the highest possible standards.”
Dr Masood Nazir, SRO for GPIT Futures and Associate CCIO, Primary Care Digital Transformation, NHSX, said:
"The GP IT Futures framework has been designed to ensure that GP colleagues and practices will be able to choose from modern, assured and well-designed products that reflect what is needed for general practice for now and for the future. These solutions will help to reduce burden in delivering patient care."
