Contraceptive and Sexual Health (CASH) Services

RBG Ref: SPS 1076

Royal Greenwich is seeking to award a contract for Contraceptive and Sexual Health Clinic (CASH) service.

The council invites bids for a contractor to provide CASH services.

The contract period is for a period of three years although the council reserves the right to extend the contract on the same terms for a further period or periods of up to 24 months making a total possible contract period of five years.

The Royal Borough of Greenwich (RBG) is reorganising their sexual health services in the borough with the continuing aim to provide an integrated model of service delivery with easy access to confidential, non-judgemental sexual health services (including for sexually transmitted diseases (STIs), contraception, abortion, health promotion and prevention).

Through this programme of work we are aiming to increase the recognition, availability and accessibility of our sexual health services across the borough. Therefore we are tendering the CASH service in order to further improve the sexual health and well-being of our residents.

The CASH service will ultimately provide a single-site open access clinic providing non-judgemental up-to-date, comprehensive and relevant sexual health service with information provided by appropriately skilled staff. With an aim to reduce sexual health inequalities in relation to the epidemiology of STIs and HIV, the service will provide improved access to sexual health services among those at highest risk of sexual ill health including gay and bisexual men, African communities, young people and those with a history of previous infection.

Working closely with both the Genito-Urinary Medicine (GUM) and Greenwich Sexual Health services in the borough, the service will offer both Level 1 and 2 testing and treatment for STIs with formally agreed protocols for onward referral of complicated (Level 3) STIs to the GUM clinic in Greenwich. It will be essential to ensure that from the patient's perspective there is a seamlessly integrated sexual health pathway with common and consistent standards. The service will also offer the full range of Level 1, 2 and 3 contraceptive services.

Please note, further information is provided in the full tender pack which will be issued to companies which express interest in this procurement exercise.

Genito-Unrinary Medicine (GUM) Sexual Health Services

RBG Ref: SPS 1075

Royal Greenwich is seeking to award a contract for Genito-Urinary Medicine (GUM) Sexual Health service.

The council invites bids for a contractor to provide GUM Sexual Health services.

The contract period is for a period of three years although the council reserves the right to extend the contract on the same terms for a further period or periods of up to 24 months making a total possible contract period of five years.

Based on the Index of Multiple Deprivation (IMD), Greenwich is now ranked as the 78th most deprived of 326 England boroughs (one being the most deprived, and 326 the least deprived). It is widely acknowledged that there is a strong link between social deprivation, sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and teenage pregnancy. Improving the sexual health of the population of Royal Greenwich by reducing the incidence of STIs including HIV therefore continues to remain a vital public health priority.

In order to tackle the borough's high and rising infection rates and increased demand for testing and treatment, the Royal Borough of Greenwich (RBG) has decided to reorganise sexual health services in the borough and as part of this programme of work are tendering its GUM service. The overarching aim will still be to provide an integrated model of service delivery with easy access to confidential, non-judgemental sexual health services (including for STIs , contraception, abortion, health promotion and prevention). However, the restructuring of sexual health services will move testing and treatment of uncomplicated STIs (Level 1 and 2 services) from GUM services in a single hospital site to a mixture of patient self-managed testing and multiple sexual health clinics with extended opening hours and convenient transport links located across the borough.

Please note, further information is provided in the full tender pack which will be issued to companies which express interest in this procurement exercise.
