The PQQ was replaced by the Selection Questionnaire (SQ) in 2016. The Selection Questionnaire consists of 3 parts, part 1 and part 2 are standard to ALL public sector tenders. Bidders are required to self-declare that none of the exclusion grounds (see part 2 below) have been breached, and that they meet the required selection criteria. Part 3 of the Selection Questionnaire allows the buyer to ask questions specific to the contract.
On 26th March 2019 A&E departments in two London hospitals were saved from closure. Sites at Charing Cross and Ealing were spared after the Health Secretary Matt Hancock axed plans for steep cuts to funding for NHS services across the borough.
In a surprise announcement during questions in the Commons, Matt Hancock told MPs that the proposed closures would not go ahead much to the delight of locals who had protested the plans from the outset.
