Rotherham MBC is tendering for tiered weight management services for adults and children consistent with the Rotherham Healthy Weight Framework. The Healthy Weight Framework is evidence-based, driven by local need and incorporates best practice. It aims to deliver an integrated suite of preventative and treatment interventions through tiered services. Each commissioned service will utilise a single comprehensive data management system, managed by a single provider in partnership with the commissioner. Providers will be expected to work collaboratively to ensure delivery of a coordinated and effective pathway.
This tender will include the following tiers of service for adults and children:
– Tier 2 children: an accessible multi-component behaviour change programme designed for children and families. Children accessing the service should have a BMI on or above the 85th centile. The service will support overweight and obese children (aged up to 17 years) to reach a healthier BMI.
– Tier 3 children: an accessible specialist multidisciplinary obesity clinic providing specialised advice and support for children and young people with BMI above the 95th centile with increased risk or 99.6th centile. The service will support obese children (aged up to 17 years) to reach a healthier BMI. In addition this tier will support appropriate referral of children and young people to access tier 4 services.
– Tier 4 children: an intensive residential programme for children and young people aged 8 to 17 years who have met referral and eligibility criteria and assessment at Tier 3.
– Tier 2 adults: an accessible multi-component weight management service for adults aiming to change behaviour to reduce energy intake and encourage physically active lifestyles. Adults accessing the service should have a BMI >25. The service will support overweight and obese adults to reach a healthier BMI.
– Tier 3 adults: an accessible specialist multidisciplinary adult obesity clinic providing specialised advice and support for clients with BMI >30 with increased risk or BMI >40 without. The service will support obese adults to reach and maintain a healthier BMI. In addition this tier will support appropriate referral of patients to access tier 4 morbid obesity surgery.
– We are also tendering for a single point of access for the healthy weight framework. This service will receive all enquiries about and referrals into the healthy weight framework services and triage into the appropriate tier of the framework using the single data management system. It is envisaged that one of the successful providers for any of the identified lots will act as the single point of access lead.
