Enteral Feeds procurement in planning stage
Following a number of enquiries about Enteral Feeds, LPP will be undertaking a new procurement for the provision of Enteral Feeds.
Details are being finalised but this is likely to include adult and paediatric Enteral Feeds (tube feeds, specialist feeds, oral nutritional supplements), enteral feeding pumps, associated consumables (plastics and possibly ancillaries), a Home Delivery Service and related support services (including Dietetic services and Nursing support).
The aim will be to offer LPP members a service which provides maximum value for money, including improved contract terms and conditions.
To this end an initial kick off meeting has been arranged for 27th April in Kingston Hospital to discuss members' requirements. Trusts and CCGs wishing to participate in the procurement exercise please contact Senior Category Manager Jeanetta Nelson on 020 7188 7188 extn 55235, or email email@example.com.
At this stage in the process we are unable to provide you with an indicative implementation date but will keep everyone informed.
