The Health and Care Act 2022 introduced a new procurement regime for selecting providers of health care services in England: the Provider Selection Regime (PSR). The PSR is intended to come into force on 1 January 2024 and will replace the:

  • Public Contracts Regulations 2015, when procuring health care services
  • National Health Service (Procurement, Patient Choice and Competition) Regulations 2013

Organisations, referred to as ‘relevant authorities’ (NHSE, ICBs, NHS Trusts and Foundation Trusts and Local and Combined authorities) under the PSR, are required to follow the PSR when arranging health care services, irrespective of whether the providers they are considering are from the NHS, the independent, or the voluntary sector.

The APC and The GM VCSE Leadership Group have arranged for an informal information session where you can have any questions answered, including how the regime may impact the sector, how it may manifest in GM and what risks or opportunities may present themselves. The session will be led by Andrew Daly from Hempsons LLP. Andrew is head of Procurement at Hempsons and has worked with NHSE on this legislation.  Andrew will also be joined by Tim Davison of Mastercall Healthcare.

The session will be held online on 13/12/23 at 1pm – 2pm. If you wish to attend the session, please register here
