These comprise five year contracts to provide ICT services to the CCGs and 75 GP practices and to supply end-to-end commissioning support services (including finance, human resources, corporate governance and communications) to the CCGs.

In addition to providing these services, we are looking forward to supporting the Northamptonshire Sustainability and Transformation Plan (STP).

We will also help to develop the local digital roadmap. This will allow the commissioners and GP practices to improve their service through the effective use of digital and information technology.

Helen Hughes, NEL Sector Director, Midlands and East, said, “We are delighted to be providing support to commissioners and GPs in Northamptonshire. We are committed to delivering excellent services through local staff, local knowledge and our proven expertise and insight”.

The contract was awarded in April 2017 and commenced on 1 August 2017.
