Blue Mountain Community and Health Care Hub - Procurement Plan

The purpose of this report is to provide an update on the progress of the Blue Mountain Community and Health Care Hub scheme and the supporting financial summary. The project is in partnership with the East Berkshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG). A decision is required to proceed to the next stage of the project, which includes completion of the heads of terms, appointment of a design team for completion of RIBA Stage 3 design and applying for planning permission. The CCG submitted an outline business case to the NHS in July 2019 to secure funding for the health provision. A procurement plan tailored to the specific requirements of this project requires approval.
