To access the e-tendering portal: www.eastmidstenders.org

Nottingham City Council is looking to redesign the substance misuse treatment system in Nottingham and to procure services to deliver that new model.

The vision is for a treatment system that delivers the best possible quality and standards of care, maximising numbers achieving a substance-free lifestyle and recovery from substance misuse.

The Authority is seeking tenders from sufficiently experienced and qualified providers for the provision of 3 Lots as follows:

  • Integrated adult drug and alcohol treatment service
  • Specialist needle exchange and sexual health service
  • Family support service

Providers may bid for single or multiple Lots.

The Authority’s detailed requirements for the above Lots are defined in the corresponding service specifications. The duration will be for five (5) years, with a possible extension of one plus one (1+1) years at the Authority’s total discretion.

The objectives for the treatment system are to:

  • Maximise the number of clients who achieve recovery
  • Reduce the harm to individuals and families (including vulnerable groups) as a direct or indirect result of substance misuse; including supporting those for who recovery is not yet an option
  • Ensure service users are at the heart of the treatment system and their own recovery journey
  • Respond to current need and be flexible to future changing needs

Integrated adult drug and alcohol treatment service

The Provider will deliver this Lot which is one of the principle components in a fully integrated drug and alcohol treatment system framed around reducing harm and achieving sustained recovery from problematic drug and alcohol use.

Specialist needle exchange and sexual health service

The Provider will deliver a specialist sexual health and needle exchange service in a fully integrated treatment system framed around achieving improvements in

    • Sexual health outcomes as defined in A Framework for Sexual Health Improvement in England 2013

 

    • Sustained recovery from drug dependency as defined by the 2010 National Drug Strategy

Family support service

The Provider will support and work with families, children of drug and alcohol users, carers and anyone affected by a family member’s substance misuse to address the negative impact of substance misuse and improve family functioning. This will include developing and maintaining a personalised, holistic package of support for individuals and whole families.
