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

There is commitment across North Lincolnshire to work in a more integrated way, including moving to integrated locality-based services for 0 — 19 year olds and their families. It is anticipated that the future provider of the School Nursing Service will work within this integrated service model to deliver the Healthy Child Programme (HCP) for 5-19 year olds in line with ‘Getting it right for children, young people and families’ (DH, 2012).
The service will work to ensure that children and young people are Safe, that they and their families are Supported, and their lives are Transformed for the better. In line with national and local ambitions and outcomes, the service will operate under 6 key principles:
1. Integrated.
2. Visible.
3. Accessible.
4. Confidential and Co-designed.
5. Early Help and Support.
6. Tiered approach.
The vision is that the integrated service will maximise uptake of vaccinations and immunisations for 5 — 19 year olds. This will include children who are not in school settings and the vulnerable and hard to reach groups. The service needs to be accessible, acceptable and adaptable to ensure that both client and commissioning needs can be met.
It is expected that the new service will achieve the best health and well-being outcomes for all children and young people outlined above via a programme of screening, health and development reviews, health promotion, targeted direct work with children, young people and their families, and parenting guidance tailored to individual risks and protective factors.
It is also expected that the service will adapt to meet the needs of any amendments to current immunisations and additional programmes in agreement with the Commissioner e.g. childhood flu.
The service should be available and accessible at times and locations that meet the needs of children and young people. A child or young person may self-refer, be referred by their family, or by another professional as part of an open access model.
The primary location for delivery will be school or education settings. However, children and young people should be offered a choice of locations which best meets their needs e.g. community centres, youth groups, general practice, hospital settings to those children who are not attending school at the time of the immunisation programme and, where appropriate, at home.
