Careium ranked number one on substantial framework

Careium has been awarded a significant contract for the supply of telecare equipment as part of a framework agreement. It covers the requirements of Leeds City Council and also Kirklees Council, Wakefield Metropolitan District Council, East Riding of Yorkshire Council, and City of Bradford Metropolitan District Council, Calderdale Metropolitan Borough Council and Middlesborough Council.

The framework will supply telecare equipment that will promote and maintain the independence and well-being of the residents who require such support. The tender included a rigorous assessment of products including a desktop evaluation and then products were called in for evaluation and/or sampling. The outcome saw Careium rank number one across the main categories of digital alarms and key associated peripherals, giving Careium the right to deliver first. Careium has been successful and ranked number one on every renewal of this contract since 2018.

The contract will run for 24 months and has a total estimated annual value of £1.6 million, with a total estimated contract value of £3.2 million. The contract is open to other local authorities joining the agreement which will possibly extend its scope.

“It is an honour to continue our successful partnership with Leeds City Council. This is driven by a shared passion for delivering high quality technology-enabled care services, giving many individuals the opportunity to live rich, safe and active lives. I’m particularly appreciative of the dedication and hard work of our UK-based colleagues in making us the number one supplier of choice. Our UK operation goes from strength to strength”, says Careium CEO Christian Walén.
