Ultra Efficient Lighting For Future Wards LCB-HEALTHCARE Pilot Project Steph Holmes MCiPS Head of Procurement The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust The Opportunity Began with an opportunity: complete ward refurbishment over 8 years Vision of the CEO: Hospital of the Future, modern, hotel feel Current wards have poor, inefficient lighting as well as being a cluttered space, little storage New and emerging lighting technology were promising to be smart and ultra efficient New innovation procurement techniques offered a way to deliver a better solution Forward Commitment Procurement
Stimulating better, cost effective innovative solutions Partnership with Department for Business, Innovation and Skills and Department of Health Current ward Next steps................ Support for an innovation procurement approach from Department of Health (DH) and Department for Business Innovation ad Skills (BIS)
CEO support Led by Director of Estates and Facilities and Head of Procurement A project team was set up, and we work shopped the vision for future ward lighting Threw away the catalogues and product lists! Thought in terms of the outcomes not products Team encouraged to be ambitious and forward thinking The lighting element ring-fenced to procure directly (rather than through a contractor) The need was identified early more than two years before it would be needed on site "The NHS has set ambitious carbon reductions targets. To meet these targets we need to take a fresh approach to innovation,
planning and procurement. This means doing all we can to support the supply chain to deliver better, future-proofed, cost-effective solutions". David Whiteley, Chief Engineer - Estates & Facilities Division, DH Project team defined outcomes An outcome based requirement was agreed: Innovative, value added, smart, ultra efficient lighting systems that can deliver the Trusts vision for Future Ward lighting, meet the operational requirements and provide added value functionality, in a cost effective way. Specifically the solutions are required to:
deliver cost effective carbon reductions provide a high quality patient centred user experience provide a high quality working and clinical environment maximise energy and resource efficiency, with improvements in product performance over the life of the Future Wards project, in particular in relation to energy efficiency provide added value through operational benefits, such as reduced maintenance meet the necessary industry lighting standards, be highly controllable The Trust is also seeking innovative financial and commercial approaches Next step.communication to the market
Made sure that potential suppliers were aware of the outcomes needed Communicated to the supply chain in a way that demonstrated the Trusts credibility and commitment as a customer Developed a market sounding prospectus and invited feedback from interested parties Issued a Prior Information Notice in the Official Journal of the EU Showed that there was a wider demand in the NHS Forward commitment provided by the 8 year programme Stressed they were interested in tomorrows technology
What could be achieved over the life of the Future Wards project given the right market conditions? Further consultation with the supply chain Consultation workshop in January 2009 75 stakeholders enabled exchange among suppliers Invaluable insights on: Choice of lighting technology and use of control systems Lighting design Measuring energy efficiency Future proofing Optimal procurement and contract approach Barriers to delivery and finding solutions
What is great about this process is that it gives us time to plan, build consortia, and bring new solutions forward workshop participant Procurement of Ultra Efficient Lighting for Future Wards Supply chain and stakeholder consultation led to refinement and simplification of outcome based specification: Innovative, value added, smart, ultra efficient lighting systems that can deliver the Trusts vision for Future Ward lighting, meet the operational requirements and provide added value functionality, in a cost effective way. The core requirement outcomes are: A step change in patient experience i.e. creating a pleasant healing environment with patients being in control of bed zone lighting levels and ambience and provide the lighting to perform clinical requirements
and incorporating measures to reduce the risk of hospital acquired infections; A demonstrable step change in energy efficiency with progressive improvements in energy efficiency and operational performance over the life of the project; A fully installed, maintained and future-proofed service Procurement of Ultra Efficient Lighting for Future Wards A pro-innovation procurement strategy developed Key features: Outcome based specification Competitive Dialogue Emphasis on innovation e.g. included in the Pre-qualification Questionnaires (PQQ) Demanding and committed customers
Forward commitment over the 8 year programme Balanced evaluation criteria Whole life costing Stimulating wider demand in NHS The key to success was to begin by asking for what was needed not what we thought was available or affordable. The results have exceeded all expectations. John Cartwright, Director of Estates and Facilities, Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust.
