This tender is issued by Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council (“the Council”) in connection with the competitive procurement for the provision of a Local Healthwatch service, this will form part of the portfolio expansion which includes the council providing improved services to the local community. The Health and Wellbeing Board, the Local Healthwatch and the Council’s Overview and Scrutiny Commissions (of which there are four which include the Health Select Commission and the Improving Lives Select Commission), have independent but complementary roles but more importantly have a shared goal to improve health, social care and wellbeing outcomes for communities in Rotherham and therefore how all three interact will have a direct influence on improving outcomes. The Local Healthwatch is seen by the Council as a critical partner in key service developments and therefore will need to work closely with partners responsible for delivering health and wellbeing to enable this to happen. An overview of the operating frameworks and standards of the NHS and the Council is therefore required. A programme of work will be developed by Healthwatch Rotherham each year based on the priorities of the Health and Wellbeing Board, local intelligence gathered and engagement and research undertaken by Healthwatch Rotherham. Having and maintaining an in-depth understanding of the issues facing local communities in Rotherham including children and young people, other vulnerable groups and communities of interest is required.
