Description

In this present instance, ESPO is working on behalf of Leicestershire County Council and Rutland County Council to undertake a procurement process to identify and appoint a single service provider to deliver an outcome focussed, high quality and person centred obesity prevention and weight management service for adults (including pregnant women), children and young people across the Counties of Leicestershire and Rutland.

The service provider will be required to design and deliver a combined weight management service for adults and children, including a Tier 2 weight management service for children aged 4-16 and their families, and a Tier 2(b) Specialist Weight Management service for Adults over 16 years of age in Leicestershire and Rutland, to be responsible for both the frontline delivery of weight management treatment services and key preventative activities. In addition, the service will coordinate a range of Tier 1 targeted healthy eating / nutrition programmes for children and adults, contributing to a reduction in the prevalence of obesity. 
The new service brings together a number of previously separate pots of funding, with the aim of developing a more coherent and co-ordinated approach to addressing obesity, with a high quality, respected specialist service at the “centre” of the strategy.
