LOT 1: Lifestyle Hub (Single Point of Access)
The aim of the Lifestyle Hub is to provide a single point of access, using a variety of media platforms, telephone and text service. This will allow a streamlined, quick and easy access to the most appropriate lifestyles programme for the individual, supported by staff trained in behaviour change techniques.
The ‘Lifestyle Hub’ will manage all referrals for individual lifestyle services for Camden and Islington through a single point of access.
The Lifestyle Hub will be the ‘public face’ of the healthy lifestyles programme in Camden and Islington. It will assess the person’s readiness for change and direct them to the most appropriate part of the lifestyle programme using behaviour change techniques. The Lifestyle Hub will also signpost residents to other lifestyle and wellness activities that form the more universal offer across both Camden and Islington.
Providers applying for this service will have robust data systems and will have experience in achieving successful outcomes through partnership working with key stakeholders and partner organisations.
The service will need to be up and running by 1.4.2016.
Contract Period
The contract period will be for 3 (three) years 36 months (thirty six) from an estimated start date 1.4.2016 with option to extend up to a further 2 (two) plus 2 (two) years (48 months)
Contract Value
The estimated total value of this Lot is 1 561 000 GBP (excluding VAT) over the maximum 84 months term of the contract. This is based on 223 000 GBP (excluding VAT) per annum. Payment will be made up of a fixed element and performance related payment. Performance related payment will account for 10 % of payment in the first year and 15 % of payment in the second and subsequent years.
There will be an additional 50 000 GBP (excluding VAT) fixed for the first year only. This budget is to support set up costs, including support with IT and software.
However the Council is confident the bids received will be lower than the estimated value.
There is a maximum fixed budget for this service of 1 561 000 GBP (excluding VAT). Any bids over this amount will be disqualified.
Award criteria
The contract will be awarded to the Most Economically Advantageous Tender (MEAT) in accordance with the Public Contracts Regulations. MEAT for this contract is quality 50 % and cost 50 % in all Lots. Tender submissions will be subject to minimum quality thresholds of at least a satisfactory score (3 out of 5) or above in all method statement questions. Further details will be provided in the invitation to tender.
Tenderers should be aware in addition to the requirements in the award criteria, that we reserve the right to hold site visits and/or additional presentations and/or interviews. This will be for verification/clarification purposes of the written submission.
LOT 2: NHS Health Checks and Community Outreach
Working as part of the overall Camden and Islington Healthy Lifestyles programme for lot 2 we are seeking a provider who can deliver NHS Health Checks and Community Outreach both as part of the overall lifestyle programme and integrated with the Hub (Lot 1)
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 service will also undertake shorter Lifestyle Checks with those not eligible for or unwilling to receive a full NHS Health Check. The provider of Lot 2 will be expected to deliver health checks and the shorter lifestyle checks as part of contract delivery.
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.
Contract Period
The contract period will be for 3 (three) years 36 months (thirty six) from an estimated start date 1.4.2016 with option to extend up to a further 2 (two) plus 2 (two) years (48 months)
Contract Value
The estimated total value of this contract is 1 953 000 GBP (excluding VAT) over the maximum 84 months term of the contract. This is based on: an innovation fund of 34 000 GBP (excluding VAT) per annum to ensure the service is reaching Camden residents most at need; and a payment of up to 245 000 GBP (excluding VAT) per annum which will comprise a fixed element (40 %) and performance related payment (60 %).
However the Council is confident the bids received will be lower than the estimated value.
There is a maximum fixed budget for this service of 1 953 000 GBP (excluding VAT). Any bids over this amount will be disqualified.
TUPE (Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations)
Potential providers must be aware that TUPE may or may not apply to this service. Further details will be available at the invitation to tender stage.
Award criteria
The contract will be awarded to the Most Economically Advantageous Tender (MEAT) in accordance with the Public Contracts Regulations. MEAT for this contract is quality 50 % and cost 50 % in all Lots. Tender submissions will be subject to minimum quality thresholds of at least a satisfactory score (3 out of 5) or above in all method statement questions. Further details will be provided in the invitation to tender.

Lot 3: Adult Weight Management
Working as part of the overall Camden and Islington Healthy Lifestyles programme for lot 3 we are seeking a provider to deliver an Adult Weight Management Service (AWMS), to deliver community based tier 2 weight management programmes 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. To facilitate choice for service users at the point of access and to provide attractive services to groups that typically engage poorly with weight management interventions, the AWMS should offer at least two sufficiently different programmes. The programmes will be categorised as follows:
Programme 1: ?70 % of the time allocated to nutrition and behaviour change education
Programme 2: ?50 % of the time allocated to physical activity
Individual programmes offered within the AWMS will be required to be multi-component and National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) compliant.
The service should be easy to access and should improve service users’ skills, knowledge and confidence in healthy eating and physical activity, resulting in weight loss and long term weight maintenance. The service will also support a reduction in health inequalities by ensuring resources are targeted to priority communities.
Contract Period
The contract period will be for 3 (three) years 36 months (thirty six) from an estimated start date 1.4.2016 with option to extend up to a further 2 (two) plus 2 (two) years (48 months)
Contract Value
The estimated total value of this contract is 1 519 000 GBP (excluding VAT) over the maximum 84 months term of the contract.

There is no guaranteed minimum income for service and payments will be up to 100 % payment by results. There will be a fixed payment of 30 000 GBP (excluding VAT) in the 1st year only, and no fixed payment in subsequent years. The maximum amounts payable as Payment by Results will be 177 000 GBP (excluding VAT) and 207 000 GBP (excluding VAT) in subsequent years.

A further 10 000 GBP (excluding VAT) per annum (over and above the fixed payment and payment by results) is available for the development of innovative services across Camden and Islington. Further details are in the information pack.

LOT 4: Community Stop Smoking Service
Working as part of the Camden and Islington Healthy Lifestyles programme for lot 4 we are seeking a provider to run a Camden and Islington Community Stop Smoking Service (C&ISSS) forms a significant strand of Camden and Islington’s Tobacco Control Strategy. 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.
Contract Period
The contract period will be for 3 (three) years 36 months (thirty six) from an estimated start date 1.4.2016 with option to extend up to a further 2 (two) plus 2 (two) years (48 months)
Contract Value
The estimated total value of this contract is 4 564 000 GBP (excluding VAT) over the maximum 84 months term of the contract. This is based on an innovation fund of 59 000 GBP (excluding VAT) per annum; and a payment of up to 593 000 GBP (excluding VAT) per annum which will comprise a fixed element (75 %) and performance related payment (25 %).
However the Council is confident the bids received will be lower than the estimated value.
The innovation fund budget is to develop innovative approaches to reaching specific at risk or vulnerable groups, by ward or other dimensions/characteristics, in order to tackle the 12 year within-borough gap in life expectancy in Camden.
There is a maximum fixed budget for this service of 4 564 000 GBP. Any bids over this amount will be disqualified.
