The job for the Kent NHS trust begins next summer

The contract – worth a total £51.25m – will begin next July and run for an initial five years and three months until the end of September 2028, with an option for an extension of up to five years. 

It is not suitable for SMEs and the chosen partner will enter into two separate contracts for each trust, with KMPT acting as the lead authority.
