Launch of the Integrated Urgent Care Service procurement

Following extensive public, stakeholder and market engagement undertaken during 2017, North West Surrey, Guildford & Waverley, Surrey Downs and East Surrey CCGs are pleased to announce the formal launch of the Integrated Urgent Care Service procurement.

The new service, which is due to go live on 1 April 2019, will combine the NHS 111 and  GP Out-of-Hours services currently being provided under separate contracts. 

The new service has been shaped by the feedback we received from local people and stakeholders and includes a series of improvements that were suggested by people who shared their views as part of our engagement programme. It will also incorporate the new national requirements relating to urgent care services. 

Further details will be released upon successful award of tender, which is expected to be in August 2018.
