Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital NHS Trust (“the Authority”) seeks to appoint a bidder to construct a Patient step down facility with rehabilitation services at the Stanmore site. The facility once constructed will provide for the following three elements:
1. Independent living assessment unit
2. Overnight parent/carer residential accommodation
3. Patient step down facility with rehabilitation services (the bidder will be providing all services in this facility)
Independent living assessment unit
This element of the construction will be an independent living assessment unit for patients who are fit for discharge from hospital but require assessment as to their ability to live independently in accommodation, prior to discharge to their home (or other appropriate setting). Employees of the Trust will provide relevant support and assessment services to these patients as appropriate. A development agreement will govern the works and a headlease will be granted on completion to the successful bidder, with a sub-lease back to the Trust to enable the Trust to use the premises to deliver the service to those patients.
