Shropshire Council is looking for a company to provide vital community equipment, including mobility & independent living equipment and personal care products, with a deadline of the 15th July for companies to express an interest.

The £1.75m contract will last four years, commencing from this September, and will require the provider to supply a wide range of prescribed equipment – from simple to complex, to meet the needs of adults and children in Shropshire.

Seeking to appoint a single provider, the tender says Shropshire Council considers the contract may be suitable for economic operators that are small or medium enterprises (SMEs), however, notes any selection of tenderers will be based solely on the criteria set out in the procurement documents.

“The main purposes of the community equipment service are to provide equipment on loan to people living in the community, enabling them to do tasks and achieve skills that they would otherwise be unable to do or to provide support to a carer to enable on-going care in their home environment.

“It is also to maintain the right community equipment for the right service user/carer, in the right place at the right time; and to meet a wide range of requirements for community equipment to meet therapeutic, rehabilitation, personal care/hygiene, mobility, independence and needs.”
