Wales to establish £100m hospital electronic prescribing framework

Digital Health and Care Wales, on behalf of NHS Health Boards across Wales, is to establish a new multi-vendor framework for electronic prescribing and medicines administration solutions.

Aiming to establish a framework agreement where NHS organisations on a local basis can call off their requirements, the scope will include software and the ongoing development, upgrade and maintenance.

Solutions must demonstrate three core capabilities: auditable prescribing decision-making support, record and monitor the issuance and administration of pharmaceuticals, and interface with local and national systems, and patient administration and pharmacy stock control systems.

The framework is to include:

  • Aneurin Bevan University Local Health Board
  • Betsi Cadwaladr University Local Health Board
  • Cardiff and Vale University Local Health Board
  • Cwm Taf Morgannwg University Local Health Board
  • Hywel Dda University Local Health Board
  • Powys Teaching Local Health Board
  • Public Health Wales NHS Trust
  • Swansea Bay University Local Health Board
  • Velindre University NHS Trust
  • Welsh Ambulance Service NHS Trust.

The value of the programme is up to £100million, and is expected to start 1 November 2022 and run to 31 October 2026.

The deadline to apply to the tender is 3:00pm, 25 July. For further details, please click here.
