Hull City Council is seeking an experienced provider to deliver the new Smokefree Hull Service, which will focus on prevention and education and tiered treatment provision, to reduce smoking prevalence in Hull.
The service will deliver a targeted, specialised stop smoking behavioural support service and will manage the Nicotine Replacement Therapy voucher scheme offered to eligible clients that are accepted into the service (including smokers supported via GPs and the Children and Young Peoples smoking cessation service). The service will also deliver a marketing campaign to reduce tobacco use in the City. Providers will deliver a comprehensive city wide tobacco harm reduction and stop smoking service that is required to meet the needs of the Hull population.
The services contribute to reducing smoking prevalence within the population of Hull. There is a community based stop smoking service that works collaboratively with other providers to fully meet the needs of the Hull population. The service aims to achieve the 4 week quit targets year on year to contribute to reductions in smoking prevalence in Hull.
The maximum value of the targeted Smokefree Hull Service is approximately 640 000 GBP per annum, this comprises 340 000 GBP for a targeted smoking cessation service plus up to 250 000 GBP for NRT and a further 50 000 GBP to fund a campaign to reduce tobacco use in the city.
The Authority proposes to enter into one Contract for a period of 3 years with the successful Tenderer (Service Provider), with an option to extend for a period or periods of up to a maximum of 12 months. Such extension will be at the discretion of the Council and subject to satisfactory performance.
The Authority envisages that the staff working on the current service shall transfer to the Service Provider or its subcontractors, under the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006 (SI 2006/246) (TUPE) along with the Services.
Under this contract the Supplier will be required to actively contribute to the achievement of social objectives. These include: skills development; employment and training opportunities within the locality of where the contract will be delivered; and other added value initiatives throughout the supply chain to support community programmes promoted by the council. Accordingly contract performance conditions may relate in particular to secondary considerations.
