Velindre University NHS Trust is seeking tender proposals for the New Velindre Cancer Centre project which will be situated at Whitchurch, North Cardiff. It is proposed by the contracting authority to procure the estimated £562,000 project through the Welsh Government’s Mutual Investment Model (“MIM”) which is a specific model for procuring PPPs in Wales.

The new cancer centre facility which is about 32,000 m² is to be designed, constructed, financed and maintained by an operator who will be awarded the contract. It will have the capacity for 8,500 new patients and 160,000 patient appointments a year – up from the current levels by two thousand and 20,000. It’s part of a plan to increase capacity across South East Wales.

The new Velindre Cancer Centre project director, David Powel, said, “The 60 year-old Velindre Cancer Centre does not have the facilities or space to meet this future challenge. So, we want to replace it with a new one. The new centre will treat more patients and help more people live longer with cancer. It will also further support international research and development aiming to make Wales a leader in cancer treatment.”

The deadline for applications: 21 June, 2021

To address the growing chronic kidney related illness in Bangladesh, GOB intends to pilot a Dialysis PPP Project involving approximately 150 hemodialysis stations across up to three different hospital sites in the capital city, Dhaka (“the Pilot Dialysis Project” or the “Pilot”).  The Government of Bangladesh (“GOB”), through the Directorate General Health Services (“DGHS”) and the Health Services Division (“HSD”) of the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (“MOHFW”), is receiving Technical Assistance from the Asia Pacific Project Preparation Facility (“AP3F”).

The TA is intended to support in capacity augmentation at DGHS and HSD, creation of a PPP cell and for the establishment of a sustainable model in Bangladesh to identify, prepare, and implement healthcare PPP projects with private sector investments and participations (the “Programme”).  GOB considers the delivery of high-quality clinical services such as dialysis, pathology/labs and imaging as immediate priority areas for potential private sector interventions.

The Office of Public Private Partnership (“OPPP”) at Asian Development Bank (“ADB”) is assisting GOB in implementing the Programme.  The first of such consultant procurement phases and this Terms of Reference (“TOR”) relates to preparation/implementation of a new hemodialysis project under PPP modality and restructuring of an existing dialysis PPP project.
