Any Qualified Provider is a procurement model that PCTs can use to develop a register of providers accredited to deliver a range of specified services within a community setting. The model aims to reduce bureaucracy and barriers to entry for potential providers.
NHS Sheffield is committed to developing a range of providers who can deliver high quality clinically driven services that represent value for money, along with improved choice and access for patients. The Any Qualified Provider model will be used, where appropriate, to support delivery of that commitment.
NHS Sheffield have developed Any Qualified Provider guidelines that contain full details on how and when the Any Qualified Provider model will be used.
All current Any Qualified Provider procurements are advertised on this website and the Department of Health Supply2Health procurement portal - www.supply2health.nhs.uk.
