Decision details

PH 18 2022 - Tier 3 weight management service

Decision Maker: Director of Public Health

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


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.
