Vision is pleased to announce it has been included on a new framework contract to supply GP IT systems as a Managed Service to GP practices across NHS Scotland.
The contract award was made on 1st February 2019, following a robust and rigorous procurement process, managed by NHS National Services Scotland (NSS) and overseen by the national GP IT Re-Provisioning Project Board.
The initial phase of the contract will see the further enhancement of the Vision system to meet the specific requirements of Scottish GPs in order to become an accredited system approved for use in Scotland.
Steve Bradley, Group Managing Director, Cegedim UK, comments: “We are delighted that Vision has been recognised as one of the leading GP IT systems to facilitate the delivery of exemplary primary care across Scotland. As care models evolve and patients’ needs become ever more complex, it is imperative that the technology to support these also evolves.”
NHS National Services Scotland (NSS) praised Vision for its demonstrably strong commitment and ability to meet core GP IT clinical / technical requirements and the wider Primary Care agenda, as well as further integration with NHS Scotland’s wider digital infrastructure and strategic requirements.
Colin Sinclair, Chief Executive, NHS National Services Scotland (NSS) said: “The new GP IT Managed Services Framework will offer significant benefits related to the reform of primary care across NHS Scotland and the services delivered to patients. It will provide modern, secure GP IT systems which will support the evolving models of care in Scotland.
