Medequip wins integrated community equipment services contract in London
Community equipment specialist Medequip has been awarded the BHR ICES (integrated community equipment service) contract, comprising of the London Boroughs of Barking & Dagenham, Havering and Redbridge (BHR).
The London management team has begun the engagement to guide all three boroughs through a successful implementation process with a ‘go live’ date of 1 April 2022.
The BHR ICES contract is a framework agreement, open to all London Boroughs, and Medequip says it has already been approached by other London boroughs expressing an interest.
Medequip is one of the longest-serving outsourced providers of community equipment services to the NHS and local authorities.
Earlier this year, the provider was awarded a new contract by NHS Derby & Derbyshire Clinical Commissioning Group and Derby City Council to provide CES across the city until the end of November 2023.
It has also recently been awarded a five-year contract to provide an Integrated Community Equipment Loan Service for adults, children and young people in community, care and education settings across the whole of Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland. This service will commence from April 2022.
