A paper was taken to the CCG Executive Board
outlining the case for the need to align the Tier 3 weight
management service pathway with the Tier 4 weight management
service ( currently Commissioned and funded by the Doncaster
Clinical Commissioning group). This was
evidenced in a service review back in 2019 and later proposed in a paper presented by theAssistant Director of primary care and has since been approved by the Doncaster CCG Board.
Conversations have taken place both with the CCG (and the current provider) with a view to novation of the current contract using remaining BCF resources until March 2023 and then the
CCG would pick up the service as part of a block contract with the provider from 1st April 2023. This would also mean that no further procurement is required by Public Health and the service would be secured and aligned with the Tier 4 weight management service by 1st June 2022.
To novate the contract for the Tier 3 weight
management service (currently provided by Doncaster and Bassetlaw
Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust) from Doncaster Council to
Doncaster Clinical Commissioning group (or equivalent organisation)
commencing from 1st June 2022 following an Executive board decision
taken at Doncaster CCG in November 2021.
