Anyone interested in PIP tender by ATOS.
This i'm assured is FACT.
I am giving you a scoop. I discussed with DPAC and it is okay if I communicate this document. I managed to put my hands on PIP Atos tenders. I am copying just a bit of the document, and I would like you to spread as widely as you can the fact that ATOS has planned to have 750 HPs and only 10 doctors, 1 doctor for every 75 HPs. I will also contact other people about this
Question : How many HPs we anticipate will be needed to deliver PIP in Lot 1
Based on the Authority’s volume assumptions for Lot 1, we anticipate that we will need to
utilise over 750 HPs over the life of the contract to deliver all of the PBRs and face to face
assessments. The vast majority of HPs will be either nurses or physiotherapists, and they will
be supplemented by occupational therapists and doctors. The proportions of HPs is as follows:
500 Physiotherapists, 200 Nurses, 40 Occupational Therapists, and 10 Doctors. The rationale
for this approach is based upon our knowledge and experience of the clinical requirement, the
availability of the HP we have chosen, the cost differentials between the types of HPs, the
existing presence of appropriate skills across the clinical professions and the desire for this
work following contact with the types of HPs within our partner organisations.
Many Thanks Anita.
