As this will be a national framework, within each lot there will be multiple geographical areas that bidders can apply for. It should be noted that some consultancy services are not planned to be procured for the North and Central England and London and South East regional areas due to existing framework offerings in those regions already available. Therefore, consultancy services covered by LHCs MDC1 framework will not be offered for bidding in our CPC and LSE business units, but bidders will be able to apply to provide these services in South West England , Wales and Scotland.

LHC intend to carry out further engagement webinars with interested parties in due course to discuss or initial proposals and gain feedback before finalising the framework and issuing the tender.
