Current opportunities to get involved

Request for PPV Partners to assist in the re-procurement of the NHS111 service

NHS England currently has a contract with Vodafone to allow patients in England, Wales and Scotland to dial 111 free of charge.

The contract connects patients to their local Urgent Care Centre, who advise patients individually whether they need to contact their local GP, manage their own care, or attend A&E or a Minor Injuries Unit. As the contract expires in February 2020 and we are taking steps to get the appropriate approvals to ensure this vital service is maintained.

A key part of the approval process is the production of an Outline Business Case (OBC)– which shows why this service is required. As part of this we are holding two small workshops and we would value the input of patients, particularly those who have experience of calling NHS111.
