Health and Housing – Hand in Hand

The portfolio of frameworks that Consortium Procurement offers to our members includes a variety of collaborative procurement solutions that are being developed by professionals with an innovative approach to the ever-evolving world of housing.

We are closely observing the exciting changes the housing marketplace is going through including its gentle collaboration with the social and health sectors. This collaboration coincides with the rise of digital technology in almost every aspect of our lives prompting positive transformation in the way sectors operate and move forward in their development.

As the connection between housing and health has never been higher on the agenda, we have secured our members a trusted and compliant route to procure their telecare and telehealth requirements, keeping in mind the rapid advance of technology in those areas. We have developed our Technology Enabled Care Services framework in a bid to help our members support improved health outcomes for their tenants and communities.

The framework includes Product Provision with Installation and Services relating to TECS and has been split into five lots. Following a precise procurement process, we can offer our members an extensive selection of 15 supply partners that were appointed to this framework.

Tracy Harrison, Commercial Director at the NHC said: “We are pleased to continue to help our members to deliver services which are cost effective and enable proactive care and improved quality of life for older people and those with long-term care needs throughout the UK. The Technology Enabled Care Services framework provides members with an easy-to-use procurement route from a trusted organisation.”

The NHC has put a conference together, delivered in partnership with HACT, that will explore the health challenges facing our communities, the changing operational environment for the NHS, local integration of health, housing and social care and the opportunities for housing to engage in the new models of care. With a line-up of senior leaders in the NHS, Public Health, Social Care and Housing, this event will be key for those looking to extend, develop and strengthen local partnerships with health.
