Decision Maker: Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Adult Social Care, Health & Public Health

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: Yes


The Cabinet Member approved the following.


1.The commission of an Integrated Lifestyle Service for Peterborough and Cambridgeshire with a ceiling price of £14,345,910 for a five year contract. The contract will run from the 1st June 2020 to May 31st 2025, with optional breaks at years 3 and 4. The Peterborough City Council funding for the five years will be £3,676,550.


2. Authorised the delegation of authority to Cambridgeshire County Council (CCC) to act as lead local authority in commissioning the Integrated Lifestyle Service across Peterborough and Cambridgeshire and for delivery of the function of the service to CCC, which shall include the associated transfer of funding to CCC for up to five years (1st June 2020 to 31st May 2025).

Reasons for the decision:

The rationale for establishing a single contract with a lead commissioning

organisation is that it affords the potential of a more cost-effective service model.


Recommissioning of a new service provides an opportunity to develop

innovative service delivery options such as digital and specialist health trainers

to ensure that the Service best addresses  the different needs in and between

Peterborough and Cambridgeshire.

Alternative options considered:

Tender the PCC and CCC services separately and not as a collaboration between PCC and CCC:


This option has been excluded primarily because it would not provide the

opportunity to establish more cost effective service models.
