The NHS North of England Commercial Procurement Collaborative (NOE CPC) isto re-procure its framework agreement for the provision of legal services.
It said the agreement was intended to provide participating authorities “with a compliant and efficient route to a number of high-quality legal services providers”.
The framework will have a maximum number of 12 legal service providers appointed.
The contract start date is 1 April 2021 and the end date is 31 March 2023.
In April 2017 the NOE CPC named 12 firms to a £50m legal services framework for NHS organisations.
The firms selected were:
- Bevan Brittan
- Browne Jacobson
- Capsticks LLP
- Cater Leydon Millard
- DAC Beachcroft
- Hill Dickinson
- Mills and Reeve
- Ward Hadaway
The NoE CPC said at the time that the firms were all able to meet a broad range of NHS/healthcare needs for legal services, including: NHS Governance and Public Law; Healthcare Law; Mental Health Law; Employment Law; Contract and Commercial Law; Property Law; and Corporate Finance and PFI.
