Approval to award a new health visiting contract and align and integrate it with children’s Early Help services to jointly deliver the 0-5 Healthy Child Programme. This workstream is part of the 0-5 Transformation Programme and is integral to achieve the ambitions of ensuring all children have the best start in life.
The contract is planned to commence on or around 1st April 2022 for a period of five years, with an option to extend for a further two-year period. The total value of the proposed contract (including the extension options) is estimated to be up to £21,600,000 for WCC.
We anticipate that moving to a single delivery model and integrated workforce will enable us to deliver a more efficient service across the pathway.
The strategy supports the development of a City for All, including our vision for vibrant communities and a smart city; using technology to support a smart service that is responsive to levels of need as well as ensuring everyone has an equal opportunity to succeed and be healthy no matter their background.
