Please provide details of any General Practice Extended Access contracts put out to tender by your CCG in the last five years, including the winner of those contracts.

Our response

NHS Manchester Health and Care Commissioning (MHCC) commissioned GP Extended Access contracts from 2018 and therefore do not hold any contract information prior to 2018.


Who are the current provider(s) of General Practice Extended Access in your area?

2018-2019 Manchester Primary Care Partnership Ltd (MPCP) was commissioned from 2018 under an Alternative Provider Medical Services (APMS). A waiver was completed in support from the MHCC Executive Board, to enable MHCC to proceed to direct award.This was due to there being limited time to undertake a full procurement process and the service needing to be mobilised at pace.

2019-20 Manchester Primary Care Partnership Ltd APMS contract was extended for a further year as part of a waiver process to enable the contract of the service to be transferred across from MHCC in to the recently developed Manchester Local Care Organisation.

2020-2021 Contract expired 31/03/20. Decisions regarding the service placed on hold due Covid. The intention is for extended hours to be delivered as part of the national Primary Care Networks Directed Enhanced Services Extended Hours requirements from April 2021.
