II.1.5)Short description of the contract or purchase(s)

NHS England — North (Yorkshire and the Humber) Health and Justice commissioning team is seeking to procure Healthcare Provision for Women in Prisons across Yorkshire and Humber.
The scope of the service provision model comprises the populations of the 2 female establishments which are currently HMP & YOI New Hall and HMP Askham Grange.
The 2 prisons are structured as a ‘Cluster’ with the Contract to be tendered as 1 Lot. There is potentially a possibility that there will be changes to the female prisons estate in the future, and we would work with the healthcare providers to manage any changes.
The new service model tendered is designed to deliver:
— A gender-specific focus on delivering healthcare for women in custody;
— A renewed and strengthened focus on improving mental health outcomes and tackling substance misuse issues for women in prison that reflects latest national policy and NICE clinical guidance;
— An integrated and coherent healthcare delivery model across the cluster comprising the 2 establishments that is aligned to the local healthcare system and local offender management pathway;
— The 3 key strategic commissioning goals: to reduce health inequalities; to ensure services are integrated; and to reduce health risk factors;
— Improved provider capability and capacity, including effective contracting models with robust subcontracting and supply chain arrangements to deliver improved service quality and performance;
— Greater value for money from whole system capability and capacity, including efficient operations underpinned by strengthened contract management arrangements;
— Cost improvement from testing the market through a competitive tender to secure new provision through contract award and subsequent innovative contracting model (prime contractor model).
Under the Public Services (Social Value) Act 2012 the contracting authority must consider:
— How what is proposed to be procured might improve the economic, social and environmental well-being of the relevant area.
— How, in conducting the process of procurement, it might act with a view to securing the improvement.
