Some BCIS members may be aware that there has been some movement in the commissioning of MitraClip last week with the publication of a ‘Prior notification Notice – PIN’ . This is the initial step in the ‘expression of interest’ in becoming a commissioned MitraClip centre.
As the BCIS Structural Working Group we have a responsibility to make sure all interested centres know about this and wish to make sure that this PIN does not go un-noticed by interested Clinicians. NHS Spec Comm have issued this notice:
NHS England and NHS Improvement have published a Prior notification Notice (PIN) to enable commissioning of Percutaneous Mitral Value Leaflet repairs for Primary Mitral Regurgitation in the East of England, Midlands, North East & Yorkshire, and South East regions.
The PIN is published on the Official Journal of the European Community (OJEC) and Contract Finder websites. The OJEC reference: Quote/tender 40570 – “Percutaneous Mitral Valve Leaflet Repair for Primary Mitral Regurgitation”.
Providers will need to respond to the PIN notice/questionnaire if they wish to be included in any further process for this procurement through registering on the EU Supply website https://uk.eu-supply.com/login.asp?B=UK.
Deadline: 12 noon on Monday 17th August 2020.
The BCIS Structural Working Group are keen for this to be a fair and transparent process and will keep BCIS members posted of any major developments in this area in the coming weeks and months.
