Procurement of a New NHS 111 Service

Report of the Executive Lead, Strategy, Governance & Law (copy attached)


19.1    This item was introduced by Colin Simmons, Commissioning Lead for 111, 999 and Patient Transport, Sussex Integrated Urgent Care Transformation Programme.


19.2    Mr Simmons explained that the new 111 service would provide an improved experience, particularly in terms of the capacity for 111 staff to book appointments directly for callers.


19.3    The preferred bidder for the 111 contract is South East Coast Ambulance NHS Foundation Trust (SECAmb), with IC24 as sub-contractor. Mobilisation is beginning, with the main risks being around workforce, digital and the impact of Brexit.


19.4    RESOLVED – that the report be noted.
