Additional documents:


1.       That the award of the Occupational Health contract be delegated to officers.


27.1    The Cabinet Member considered a report of the Director of Strategy & Governance concerning the occupational health procurement process, which aimed to ensure that an effective and efficient occupational health service was provided across the council which, in turn, would create organisational savings by reducing staff absence and also have a direct impact on the services delivered to customers (for copy see minute book).


27.2    The Opposition Spokesperson noted that delays in reporting from occupational health officers occurred and sought assurances that such delays would not constitute a barrier to a better service delivery.


27.3    The Director of Strategy & Governance noted the concerns raised. He explained that the arrangements proposed were new for Brighton & Hove specifically and he was confident that this new system would improve things further. The Director also indicated that the council’s current suppliers would be allowed to tender and reported that some of them had been doing a very good job up until now.


27.4    RESOLVED – That, having considered the information and the reasons set out in the report, the Cabinet Member accepted the following recommendation:


(1)      That the award of the Occupational Health contract be delegated to officers.
