Outpatients Pharmacy Dispensing Services Framework Agreement awarded by NHS London Procurement Partnership
With an increasing number of NHS organisations looking to generate efficiencies and service improvements in Outpatient Pharmacy Dispensing, LPP has awarded a framework agreement for outsourcing of these services where an NHS organisation chooses this option.
Accessible only through further competition, the framework agreement allows for a degree of standardisation of headline governance and outline specification. Furthermore LPP has created a further competition tool kit for organisations wishing to use the framework agreement, thereby seeking to standardise the approach so simplifying processes for suppliers and NHS organisations alike.
The following services are within scope of the framework agreement:
(a) Outpatient Pharmacy dispensing services
(b) Emergency Department dispensing services
(c) Provision of Retail Pharmacy services
(d) Outpatients Pharmacy dispensing Home Delivery Service
(e) Discharge to take out or take away (TTO/TTA) Medicines Dispensing
