On 7th November 2017, Dudley CVS hosted with Dudley CCG a session with voluntary organisations and community groups across Dudley borough on Dudley’s new MCP.
Purpose of session
Following the launch of the procurement process for Dudley’s Multispecialty Community Provider (MCP) in June, Dudley CCG recently announced the bidder that has made it through to the next stage of the procurement process.
Since September 2017, Dudley CCG has been going through a dialogue process with a consortium involving four local NHS Trusts and local GPs. The four trusts are – Birmingham Community Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust, The Dudley Group NHS Foundation Trust, Dudley and Walsall Mental Health Partnership NHS Trust and Black Country Partnership NHS Foundation Trust.
The new Multispecialty Community Provider (MCP) will bring together services in an integrated manner and will:
- hold a contract of up to 15 years’ duration;
- manage a single, whole-population budget;
- transform the access to and delivery of community health and care services with Primary Care at the centre, and meet a defined set of outcome and performance measures.
As part of the dialogue phase, Dudley CVS hosted in partnership with Dudley CCG this engagement event for the voluntary sector with the potential consortia. This event enabled the voluntary sector to learn about proposed plans for the MCP and an opportunity to observe and engage in discussions on pre-set questions about how the potential bidder intends to engage with the sector over 10 – 15 years to meet the outcomes of the MCP.
