The Open Framework For The Provision Of Public Health Services has been developed by Hampshire County Council to meet the demand of providing community based Public Health services over the next 5-7 years. It is an opportunity for providers to work with The Council to deliver these services in Hampshire moving forward.
The services under the Open Framework include Long Acting Reversible Contraception, Emergency Hormonal Contraception, NHS Health Checks, Seasonal Influenza Immunisation for eligible HCC staff. This is not a comprehensive list and the Open Framework will be flexible to capture emerging requirements throughout it's lifetime.

The Open Framework is conducted under the "light touch regime" Providers interested in delivering work through this Open Framework need to register with In-Tend and then complete an enrolment questionnaire. The enrolment questionnaire will require providers to submit details relating to their organisation which will be assessed by the Council and successful providers will be admitted onto the Open Framework. The Open Framework will always be open meaning that providers can apply at any time and providers who have previously been unsuccessful may re-apply once they have taken any corrective action.
Being accepted onto the Open Framework is no guarantee of work, and service users may engage the provider for the services via the Open Framework at any time. Providers will be engaged directly by the service users and will be chosen by service user choice.
Some of the services likely to be included in the Open Framework are detailed in the short description however the Open Framework will be flexible to accommodate emerging requirements. This is set out in the procurement documents.
