Cabinet considered a report seeking approval to commission Sexual Health services in Cheshire East with effect from 1 April 2019.


It was proposed that the new contract would be for 5 years with the possibility of two annual extensions. The length of the contract was designed to encourage interest from a wide range of organisations and to provide financial sustainability to the successful provider who would be expected to act as strategic lead for sexual health services in the Borough. 




That Cabinet


1        agree the recommissioning of Sexual Health service for Cheshire East to include, if practicable an agreement with NHS England for the simultaneous commissioning of cervical screening within community Sexual Health services; and


2        delegate authority to the Executive Director of People in consultation with the Portfolio Holders for Health and Children and Families to award the contract to the successful supplier.
