This decision is seeking to initiate the last available 12 months extension provision within the contracts with Leeds Community Healthcare NHS trust to deliver health protection - infection control, healthy child pathway and early start service (health visiting) services and with GPs to deliver NHS health checks. The contract extensions are required to ensure continuity of these key public health services until 31st March 2019. This additional time will enable the council to complete service reviews and re-commissioning for these services with the aim to achieve long term, value for money solutions, which deliver high quality outcomes for the council and service users.
In addition, it is seeking approval to vary the NHS health checks and early start service contracts to ensure the contracts and funding reflect the services being delivered for the council.
