Lifeline Crisis Response Service: pre-tender engagement

As part of the Protect Life strategy the Public Health Agency (PHA) is planning to tender for a Lifeline Crisis Response Service (LCRS), consisting of a Regional Crisis Telephone Helpline and Community-Based Support Services within each of the five HSC Trust areas. 

The aim of the LCRS is to help reduce the number of deaths as a result of suicide and the number of incidents of self-harm in Northern Ireland, through enabling access to appropriate services for those at immediate risk of suicide, self-harm, or homicide/suicide. 

The key objective of the LCRS is to provide an accessible service for those most at risk.

A market engagement will be held on 3 July 2017 at 10am in the Mid-Ulster area to gain a clear understanding of available services and developments in this market and gauge the level of interest in the provision of the services in advance of the formal tender process.

Interested suppliers should confirm attendance to PaLSinfo@hscni.net before 30 June 2017.

Full details of the Prior Information Notice (PIN) in respect of the Lifeline Crisis Response Service can be found at www.etendersni.gov.uk and the main CPV code is: 85000000
