The development of a new health and wellbeing campus for Shepton Mallet has reached a new milestone with confirmation today (31-3-16) that two organisations have been shortlisted to proceed to the next stage of the procurement process for the re-provision of services at the Shepton Mallet site.
The organisations shortlisted are:
- Shepton Mallet Health Partnership (Somerset Partnership NHS Foundation Trust and Care UK)
- Royal United Hospitals Bath NHS Foundation Trust
The contract is for eight (plus two) years, worth £135 million to re-provide inpatient, community and secondary care services as part of a highly innovative scheme to develop the town’s community hospital site as a health and wellbeing campus.
The ambitious plan will see the Treatment Centre, community hospital and a relocated Grove House Medical Centre located on the same site. The site could even provide a base for the voluntary sector and local community organisations to offer local people health promoting activities and advice to patients and the public.
Somerset CCG, which is overseeing the procurement of the Shepton Mallet Health and Wellbeing Campus contract, aims to announce the successful bidder by the summer of 2016.
