Home / Case Study – Block book beds with ease

Two Merseyside based CCGs recently engaged with MLCSU for support in procuring a block contract for Intermediate Care Beds (ICB) split over both COVID-positive and COVID-negative cohorts. Rebecca Crawford, Care Brokerage Lead at MLCSU, worked with South Sefton and Southport and Formby CCGs to explore the procurement options available. She advised that our existing DPS solution – adam, would allow the bed-base and contract to be in place in a matter of weeks.

MLCSU joined a weekly project group and supported the CCGs to specify their exact requirements, using adam’s wealth of intuitive
Creation of bespoke requests including: detailed tender instructions and contact details to guide providers, responses to 18
different key requirements, all in an easy-to-compare format
Automatic distribution to pre-enrolled providers: automatic email system, automated system ensuring submission of fully
compliant offers
Easy offer analysis and contracts creation: automatic filtering and ranking, offer collation, automatic facilitation of service
agreement and payments

“The whole process was just slick, quick and hassle free.

Having pre-enrolled providers …allowed us to expediate the process to already pre-accredited providers. We already had that assurance in place.”

Sharon Forrester, Southport and Formby CCG

“Simple, effective, worked really well as a team. The competitive process was fair, open and transparent. Set standards and gave a fair chance to bid. Competitively award contracts in a timely way, at a time when we needed an increase in capacity quickly. There wasn’t any time when you weren’t sure. It was always “yes”. You were accessible and willing to meet. Nothing was too much trouble. You have a “can-do” attitude. You let the successful bidder know. This really helped us pull the contracts together as a CCG. We complimented each other well.”

Boo Stone, South Sefton CCG
