EiB are delighted to have helped HDFT NHS Trust secure the £35m 0-19 Children’s Services contract in Sunderland.
The five-year contract begins on 1 July 2018 and adds to the Trust’s impressive list of services provision, further underlining their status as the UK’s largest provider of 0-19 Public Health services. This result follows a successful 2017 for HDFT, in which the Trust also won 0-19 Children’s Services contracts in Stockton-on-Tees and Gateshead to add to the services already provided in North Yorkshire, Middlesbrough, County Durham and Darlington.
As an integral part of children’s services, HDFT will improve health and wellbeing outcomes, identify additional needs early, build resilience and reduce health inequalities by providing effective universal and targeted interventions for children, young people and their parents and carers across Sunderland. The Trust is now bringing together a mobilisation team to ensure a seamless transition of staff and services from the current provider.
EiB Managing Director Scott Brown commented: “This result will make a positive difference to children, young people and families across Sunderland. I am really proud of our team for their hard work and collaboration with HDFT’s Business Development Team, led by Sammy Lambert, to win this tender”.
This successful tender further emphasises EiB’s strong relationship with HDFT, which over the past three years has resulted in the development of an innovative integrated model of service planning and delivery, creating ‘One Team’ wrapped around the needs of children, young people and families.
