Tunstall Healthcare receives framework agreement from Buying Solutions

Tunstall Group : 11 August, 2010  (Application Story)
Tunstall Healthcare is awarded a framework agreement for the supply of telecare, telehealth and telecoaching equipment and services to local authorities and NHS organisations.
The new framework agreement was awarded by Buying Solutions, the national procurement partner for all UK public services and part of the Efficiency and Reform Group within the Cabinet Office.

The telecare, Telehealth and telecoaching framework agreement is for two years, (with the option of two further one year extensions) and replaces the previous Telecare framework agreement from NHS Purchasing and Supply Agency (PASA). It also forms a key part of the Department of Health’s vision of building a strong Telecare infrastructure across the UK, outlined in July’s Government White Paper.

The Yorkshire-based telehealthcare company now has the go-ahead to expand its role as the leading provider of products and services that support people to remain living independently at home and avoid the need for residential or hospital care.

Managed by Buying Solutions, the framework agreement provides a simplified procurement process that meets the European legislative requirements of public sector organisations with nationally negotiated pricing and pre-agreed terms and conditions. It also gives access to an electronic catalogue of Telecare and Telehealth solutions, and removes the need for separate tendering or procurement arrangements saving time whilst offering best value.

Tunstall Healthcare is one of only six organisations that have received the award to supply products and services within all six Lots of the framework agreement including, Telecare Products, Telecare Services, Telehealth Products, Telehealth Services, Telecoaching Products and Services and Managed Services. As a result, Tunstall is well placed to offer its public sector customers a wide range of products and services to suit their individual and specific requirements.

Jon Lowe, Tunstall’s UK Managing Director said: “I’m delighted that Tunstall has been awarded the framework agreement and look forward to working with our customers to expand the services they offer. The award comes at a time when public sector organisations are looking to deliver more services with fewer resources and embedding telehealthcare solutions is a proven way of delivering such outcomes. Tunstall’s position within all six Lots means we are extremely well placed to work in partnership with our customers and Buying Solutions to help them meet the Government’s challenging targets.”
