16/09/2019 - Approve payment for Hoople Services 2019/2020 ref: 6250    Recommendations Approved (subject to call-in)

To approve payments to Hoople for services as specified in the Hoople service level agreement for 2019/20 and establish the overarching agreement (the Hoople Services Contract) which sets out the contract between Hoople and the council for 2019/20 onwards following the expiry of the prior agreement.

 

Hoople provides a range of service to the council, including revenues and benefits, finance, human resources, ICT, training and education, and reablement services, they also assist the council in its management of ICT applications that are provided to the council by others. These services support the operation of the council across all directorates. The cost to the council of services provided by Hoople in 2019/20 is expected to be £5.699m. The services that Hoople are to deliver in each financial year are described in an annual plan, which is known as the Hoople service level agreement or the ‘Hoople SLA’. As a teckal company those services are to be provided to the council at cost with no profit element. For 2019/20 the overarching agreement (the Hoople Services Contract) which sets out the contract between Hoople and the council is to be re-established following the expiry of the prior agreement. The expired agreement has been reviewed for any contractual mechanisms, which refer to processes that are still deemed to be active. These being moved into a current document overarching the annual Hoople SLA document.  Amongst other things that agreement sets out the payment mechanism through which payment will be made to Hoople. That payment mechanism is entirely compatible with the arrangements that are necessary for the council to maintain the teckal exemption under which this provision must operate. As such approval of the new overarching agreement is also sought in order to enable Hoople to be paid for the services specified in the Hoople service level agreement for 2019/20, or the agreed variant thereof. This new overarching agreement will then be the subject of regular review.

 

The recommendations put forward enable the client/provider relationship between the council and Hoople to continue on a sound contractual footing, they enable the services that Hoople are commissioned to provide to be fully described, adjusted as may be required to support the council’s operations and then paid for to the extent that they have been provided.

09/09/2019 - NHS Health Checks Contract Extension ref: 6227    Recommendations Approved

This report seeks the approval of a 1 year extension to the current contractual arrangement for the delivery of NHS Healthchecks to 31 March 2021.

It is recommended that the council directly award a contract extension to Taurus Healthcare to continue to provide NHS Health Checks, including identification and invitations to the eligible population (residents aged 40-74 and not on existing disease registers).  This is based on Taurus Healthcare, as the GP Federation, being the only body currently capable of accessing GP practice lists and able to utilise the day-to-day contact and interaction GPs already have with the patient base.

 

A contract extension is also recommended to allow time for the establishment of the new Primary Care Networks.  The intention will be to work with Taurus Healthcare as a key strategic partner and as part of a multi-disciplinary steering group to ensure relationships are developed with primary care network directors to support the improvement of the health check service delivery and targeting.  

 

The existing contract is due to expire on 31/03/2020. The recommendations being made take account of the evidence base, lessons learnt following review of the current service provision and acknowledgement of the development work taking place to establish Primary Care networks throughout the county.

 

Decision Maker: Cabinet member health and adult wellbeing

Decision published: 09/09/2019

Effective from: 14/09/2019

Decision:

That:

(a)  a 1 year contract extension be awarded to Taurus Healthcare at a value of up to a maximum of £200,000 to provide NHS Health Checks in the period 1 April 2020 to 31 March 2021.
