Suppliers have played a key role in supporting customers throughout the pandemic from offering mental health workshops and publishing material on dealing with an array of issues including burnout, health anxiety and stress. Our suppliers are flexible in their delivery methods and offer a remote delivery model wherever possible and clinical governance allows.

Customers will continue to have the option for services to be delivered remotely beyond the pandemic.

Appointed suppliers to this framework are required to ensure their service offerings meet accessibility requirements and any websites, portals or apps must be equally accessible by all customers.
