Request to grant permission to accept funding from Department of Health and Social Care and vary the contract for the provision of NHS Health Checks to deliver workforce NHS Health Checks pilot. pdf icon PDF 242 KB


The Cabinet Member for Health, Social Care and Wellbeing considered the report, which sought approval for the acceptance of external funding of £200,000 from Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) for Workplace Cardiovascular NHS Health Checks pilot.


In order to successfully deliver the programme, an approval to vary the existing contract for the provision of NHS Health Checks delivered by Haringey GP Group Limited trading as Haringey GP Federation to provide workplace Cardiovascular NHS Health Check pilot was recommended.


In response to questions from the Cabinet Member, the following information was provided:


-       Given the clear objectives for delivery of the service in the next 12 months, there was no option to go out to tender for this provision.


-       The Haringey GP Federation were successfully providing this service and varying the existing contract with them allowed a consolidation of resources and continued capacity for this provision.


-       The Council were one of only six London boroughs to gain access to this funding.



The Cabinet Member for Health, Social Care and Wellbeing,




1.    To grant approval to accept external funding estimated to be £200,000 for Workplace NHS Health Checks pilot in accordance with Contract Standing Order (CSO) 17.1; and


2.    To vary the existing contract for the provision of NHS Health Checks delivered by Haringey GP Group Ltd t/a Haringey GP Federation to provide workplace Cardiovascular NHS Health Check pilot with a target start date in July/August 2024 for a period of 9 to 12 months at the maximum cost of £200,000 (exclusive of VAT).  The proposed variation is allowed under CSO 10.02 and CSO 16.2.  The total contract value for the duration of the existing contract is £495,080. The aggregated total value of the contract will be a maximum of £695,080 including the above proposed variation.


Reasons for decision


Accepting this external funding will help the council to upscale its current outreach NHS Health Checks with target to workplaces for eligible population for NHS Health Checks and/or those outside of the 40 to 74 year old age range including workers from out of the area as specified in the grant specification. This model also open opportunities to engage with eligible population but less likely to take it up (e.g. men and younger age groups). Furthermore, the checks involve Mini cardiovascular disease (CVD) checksfor some individuals who may not be ready to engage with a full NHS Health Checks.


The NHS Health Checks will spot the early signs of cardiovascular disease, (which is the 2nd highest cause of mortality after cancer in Haringey), such as heart disease and provide people with the information they need to reduce their risk of having a heart attack, stroke or developing diabetes. This workplace project would also contribute to a reduction in sickness absence and worklessness, associated costs of staff turnover, loss of skill base, downtime, recruitment and re-training.


Variation to the current NHSHC contract is a viable option:
