The National Health Service Commissioning Board is the Contracting Authority. The Board uses the operational name ‘NHS England’. The Board operates Area Teams in different parts of England. This procurement will be run by NHS England Health & Justice (North West) which is part of the Lancashire Area Team.
Prison health care has developed quite successfully over the last 10 years to ensure prisoners have access to the full range of health care services. The North West wish to refocus the next stage in prison health care development through this procurement to encourage providers to work collaboratively in defining a community focused approach to which health care and substance misuse services will interface.
It will be imperative that prospective providers work very closely with key stake holders and prison governors to map out pathways of care and initiate innovative training and development of staff and service users to implement the health trainer and peer support model which is fully integrated with health care and substance misuse services.
Subject to future budget allocations, the Contracting Authority may also be purchasing on behalf of local authorities within the Greater Manchester area.

The Contracting Authority will hold a stakeholder event on the 11.7.2014 at Warrington Peace Centre, Peace Drive, Warrington, WA5 1HQ from 10am to 2pm. Organisations interested in attending the stakeholder event should register by contacting Alison Golden on alison.golden@nhs.net or +44 1138254772.
