•             Physical Activity

Physical activity is integral to some of our contracts and  we have no
standalone physical activity contracts. Where physical activity is
supported or provided it is as part of a wider set of activity or to
achieve wider outcomes e.g. weight management, healthy eating, etc.

However, we do act as a partner in the Sport England bid, and HCC Public
Health are the banker. Technically this is not outsourced as its done
through agency agreements between authorities

 

•             Health Trainers (or similar model)

We have no Health Trainers, or similar model.

 

 

Are any/all of these services outsourced or delivered in-house?

Are they integrated into one service or are they outsourced separately?

They are outsourced separately, as our Contract Register shows

 

If they are outsourced, please provide the following information:

Contract value

Current provider

Contract length

Renewal date

These details can be found under each Contract Register entry

 

If they are currently delivered separately, are you planning on
integrating these services and commissioning under one contract?

Not in this financial year. We do not have finalised plans for future
years as yet
