Blog | Increasing Capacity Framework (ICF) | DMC Healthcare successfully appointed

DMC Healthcare, a leading independent provider of dermatology, radiology reporting, endoscopy and community services, has successfully been appointed to the Increasing Capacity Framework (ICF) commencing 1st August 2022.

The ICF has been established by NHS England, to support commissioners and Trusts with a quick and easy route to contract with the independent sector for elective care services on a set of standard terms and conditions.

“With waiting list pressures, workforce shortages and unprecedented demand, DMC Healthcare is excited to be part of the framework, which ensures that the buying process is fully compliant with procurement legislation. It also demonstrates that we have been successfully assessed for our financial stability, track record, governance, experience and professional ability.”

Dr Ravi Gupta, Group Medical Director, DMC Healthcare

Firmly rooted in the NHS and dedicated to excellent patient care for nearly 55 years, DMC Healthcare works with 30+ NHS organisations and other partners, treating up to 100,000 patients each year.
