Building on past iterations of the framework, P23 brings the latest best practice in construction methods to the NHS and focuses on delivering greener facilities, reducing carbon emissions and promoting social value.

P23 includes 3 England-wide, value based lots (1) <£20m (2) £20-£70 (3) £70m+. Lot 1 is split geographically across the 7 NHS England and NHS Improvement regions, encouraging the inclusion of more regional and medium sized firms and increasing capacity.

CWAS2 continues the principles of, and will run alongside, the Construction Works and Associated Services framework (RM6088) to provide additional market capacity in the areas covered by lots 4 & 5.
