Issue details

Procurement of a Locality Community Health Development and Improvement Service

Brief Description

Approval to enter into a competitive tender process to procure a Locality Community Health Development and Improvement Service from 1st April 2022 for a 5 year contract period (with an option to extend for a further period of up to 24 months) at a maximum budget of £794,257 per annum (£3,971,285 for the overall contract period, including the maximum extension)

Impact On Wards[1]

The 10% most disadvantaged wards are currently supported in this area of work via Public Health funding. Provision will end on 31st March 2022 (available extension has been used) and if a new service is not put in place opportunities for people from these wards to access activities which help improve health and wellbeing and reduce health inequalities will be significantly impacted.

Financial and procurement implications[2]

Annual funding of £794,257 is available from the Public Health budget. This is a new procurement which is needed due to existing provision ending.

Partnership working[3]

Leeds City Council officers are working closely with colleagues in the CCG to make sure that the design of the service is such that it aligns with CCG priorities so that if CCG funding becomes available, the service will be able to expand and increase delivery accordingly.
