Paper to outline the proposed approach to the re-commissioning of the Integrated Sexual Health service in Stockport.


The Cabinet has considered a proposed approach to the re-commissioning of the Integrated Sexual Health service in Stockport and has given approval to go out to tender on the basis identified in the report and that the approval to award the contract be delegated to the Director of Public Health in line with her duties in terms of managing the Council’s Public Health functions and delegation to enter into contracts, following consultation with the appropriate Cabinet Member.

Alternative options considered:


Interests and Nature of Interests Declared:


Reason Key: Significant expenditure or savings;

Wards Affected: (All Wards);

Equality and/or Environmental Impact Assessment: An equalities impact assessment will be undertaken prior to publishing any tender document. However, given the nature of the services that will be provided and the contractual obligations we will be placing on providers, we do not see any issues that would disadvantage any individuals or groups including those with protected characteristic. In terms of environmental impact, elements of this commission would be well suited for digital solutions and engagement and we will consider that within the context of reducing environmental impact.

Decision Reference: CAB315

Declarations or conflicts of Interest: None.

Other reasons / organisations consulted

Market engagement work commenced in 2020 and there has also been a Greater Manchester wide public survey around contraception. Consultation around the detail of this provision will take place with stakeholders including Stockport CCG, primary care and Stockport Family
