Update on Umbrella Sexual Health Services:

As part of the government’s initiative to implement e-procurement, University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust (UHB) is establishing a Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) to commission Sexual Health Services from Pharmacies.

UHB, who run sexual health services across Birmingham and Solihull under the Umbrella branding,  have given notice that the electronic procurement process in Birmingham is now live and any pharmacy wishing to be included in delivering services will need to apply electronically to be admitted to the DPS.

This applies to both current Umbrella providers and those interested in becoming an Umbrella provider.

Once this is complete the provider will be able to “bid” for the services. Only those who have been successfully admitted to the DPS will be able to bid for the services. The first Tender Round for all wards in Birmingham will be opening on 2nd September 2016 and if you wish to be included you MUST register as detailed below and submit an on-line Pre-Qualification Questionnaire (PQQ) by midday on 17 August 2016.  The opportunity to apply to be admitted to the DPS will remain open for the life of the DPS, however until you are admitted as a provider you will not be able to tender for the “Services”.

Please click here or on the “Sign up” tab above to view the full invitation letter if you are interested in tendering for the service. Once you have read the invitation letter, please find links below for all of the relevant documents referred to in the letter:
