Eversheds advises NHS trust on IT services procurement and tendering exercise

Eversheds has advised South West Yorkshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (SWYPFT) on a detailed procurement and tendering exercise in order to find a provider for the future provision of its IT services. The five-year contract has been awarded to Phoenix IT Managed Services.

The partnership between the trust and Phoenix IT Managed Services will help the trust develop and enhance IT services, which will support an improved offer to people who use the trust services, with care closer to home and support for self-directed and self-managed care, and staff using technology to best effect to support a good service user experience.

The Eversheds team was led by senior associate Nichola Watts.
