Could you please bring clarification to the following questions all related to lot 1 for Liverpool Heart & Chest Hospital: 1. With regards to the requirement of a minimum of 2 pacemaker companies plus extraction equipment companies, this would require the awarded supplier to base a 3rd party materials management person in the cardiac Cath labs at Liverpool Heart and Chest hospital. Is this something that would be acceptable to the trust? 2. The number of pacemakers currently in follow up for Medtronic (2400) does not seem correct given that historical ordering trend from Liverpool Heart and Chest Hospital for these products over the past few years has been very low. Please confirm whether this is an accurate value, if not please advise what it should be. 3. Regarding the essential requirement for remote monitoring assistance centre that reviews all transmissions – Would it be acceptable to have a system that was able to do this only for a single supplier's devices? 4. Regarding the minimal requirement for home monitoring services to allow monitoring of all manufacturers devices, would it be acceptable to have a system that only does this for one supplier's devices, with the hospital retaining their own access to other manufacturers systems?
