The following is a PIN notice only and is being placed to alert providers to a potential future procurement exercise for a Lymphoedema Service. Any values and timescales stated within this PIN notice are for guideline purposes only and should not be taken as a guarantee.
East Berkshire Clinical Commissioning Group (“the CCG”) is considering their options for commissioning a lymphoedema service for all adults aged 18 or over who are registered with a GP in East Berkshire. Patients would be eligible for the service based on having primary or secondary lymphoedema and this is regardless of diagnosis (i.e., cancer and non-cancer patients; palliative and non-palliative).
The aim is to provide a comprehensive service for adults with lymphoedema involving assessment, intervention, evaluation, advice and support. This will be in line with national and local best practice guidance, and local population requirements. The vision for people with lymphoedema in the East Berkshire CCG area is to receive high quality, effective services which are delivered closer to home and are easily accessed. The service will operate with short waiting times and high responsiveness to the needs of local communities. The service will be free at the point of access.

Approximate current caseload: 420 (this is expected to rise)
Approximate current number of monthly appointments: 130
Current contract value: £180,000 p.a.
