Report of the Executive Director Health and Adult Social Care (copy attached)
RESOLVED - That the Adult Social Care and Public Health Sub Committee grants delegated authority to the Executive Director of Health and Adult Social Care to conduct a procurement process as outlined by this report for the provision of sexual health, HIV prevention and social care services and to enter into the subsequent 3 +2 year contract.
16.1 The Sub Committee considered a report of the Director of Adult Health and Social Care the purpose of which was to outline plans for the re-commissioning of the sexual health promotion, HIV prevention and living well service from April 2022. This service supported residents of the City with particular focus on those groups at higher risk of HIV and sexual Ill-health.
16.2 It was explained that current service delivery was very good with performance generally exceeding the requirements of key performance indicators and that the current contract for the provision of these services expired on March 31st, 2022. It was proposed that a prior information notice (PIN) was posted as a call for competition in the first instance. If the PIN resulted in expressions of interest from other parties a procurement by tender would be undertaken. If no expressions of interest were received it is proposed that a new contract was negotiated with the current provider, Terrence Higgins Trust.
16.3 In answer to questions by Councillor Grimshaw it was explained that although this work complemented and dovetailed with the Social Care Strategy it was not directly linked into it. Currently the focus of the departments work continued to be on the Covid response. Plans were in place for a refresh of existing plans to be undertaken and it was intended to bring a report to the next scheduled meeting of the Sub Committee to provide an update on this work.
16.4 RESOLVED - That the Adult Social Care and Public Health Sub Committee grants delegated authority to the Executive Director of Health and Adult Social Care to conduct a procurement process as outlined by this report for the provision of sexual health, HIV prevention and social care services and to enter into the subsequent 3 +2 year contract.
