Camden and Islington Councils invite suitable expressions of interest from suppliers for the provision of the following as part of the Council’s joint Adult Healthy Lifestyles Services. This contract has been advertised previously as 1415-189 Camden and Islington Healthy Lifestyles programme (2015/S 105-191279).

Lot 1: NHS Health Checks and Community Outreach Working as part of the overall Camden and Islington Adult Healthy Lifestyles programme for lot 1 we are seeking a provider who can deliver NHS Health Checks and Community Outreach both as part of the overall lifestyle programme. NHS Health Checks is a nationally mandated public health programme that aims to keep people well for longer. It is a risk assessment and management programme that aims to prevent or delay the onset of major non-communicable disease including heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and kidney disease through earlier awareness, assessment, and management of risk factors and conditions. These assessments are targeted at those aged 40 to 74 years with no diagnosed long term conditions. This service will deliver NHS Health Checks in the community alongside those delivered in General Practice. In Camden and Islington we recognise that the burden of ill health is such that our populations would benefit from lifestyle interventions that stretch beyond the national eligibility criteria and remit of the NHS Health Checks. The immediate aim of both NHS Health Checks and Lifestyle Checks is to identify risk factors; deliver healthy living messages; and motivate behaviour change through relevant behaviour change techniques and onward referral to GPs and the Lifestyle Hub. The approach to Lifestyle Checks has been determined locally but is based on the best practice of the lifestyle elements of the NHS Health Check.
Lot 2: Integrated Adult Weight Management and Exercise on Referral The aim of the Exercise and Weight Management Service is to improve the wellbeing of adults in Camden and Islington by delivering sustainable increases in physical activity and reduced overweight and obesity to eligible populations. There will be 2 streams to this service:
a) The Exercise on Referral stream will increase the physical activity levels of population groups with specified health conditions in Camden and Islington to support the prevention and management of particular health conditions.
b) The Weight Management stream will deliver a community based tier 2 weight management service for overweight adults (body mass index 25 to 35 kg/m²) with comorbidities and obese adults (body mass index 30 to 40 kg/m²) in Camden and Islington. The service should be easy to access and should improve service users’ skills, knowledge and confidence in healthy eating and physical activity, resulting in long term maintenance of physical activity and weight loss.
Lot 3: Community Stop Smoking Service Working as part of the Camden and Islington Adult Healthy Lifestyles programme for lot 3 we are seeking a provider to run a Camden and Islington Community Stop Smoking Service. The aim of the Service is to deliver a high quality, effective and accessible smoking cessation service through: One to one support and/or group advice (as appropriate) to any tobacco smoker (including those using electronic cigarettes as part of a cessation attempt) aged 13+ years who is resident, registered with a GP, works or studies in Camden or Islington, and wants to give up smoking; Increased choice of, and improved access to, stop smoking services. Access to and, where appropriate, supply of pharmacological stop smoking aids. By employing a universally available service model, with a focus on key target groups, this Service will contribute to the reduction of health inequalities across both boroughs, which have resulted from high levels of cardiovascular disease and other long term conditions. Providers can apply for 1, 2 or all of the Lots. Before proceeding, for each Lot please en sure you read the document ‘Open Tender Instruction’.
