Tender Notice for Delivery of Healthwatch Croydon
Croydon Council is seeking to engage a contractor for the provision of Healthwatch Croydon.
Established by the Health and Social Care Act 2012, local Healthwatch organisations are the local consumer champion for patients, service users and the public, covering both health and social care. Local authorities have a statutory duty to commission a local Healthwatch organisation, which in turn has a set of statutory activities to undertake as set out in the legislation.
The Act requires that the body contracted to be the local Healthwatch must be a social enterprise or a body which might reasonably be considered to act for the benefit of the community.
The contract for this service will only be awarded to an organisation who meets the requirements of the Act in the opinion of the council.
Value excluding VAT: 748 000.00 GBP
