NHS Sheffield: Physical Health Improvement Service

NHS Sheffield CCG is seeking collaborative bids for the provision of a physical health improvement service for people living in Sheffield with severe mental illness, learning disabilities and autistic spectrum condition.

Due to procurement requirements a single lead provider is required, however a collaborative approach is strongly encouraged. The lead provider could come from a range of organisations, however it would be expected that there were clearly defined routes for using or building on existing information and data sharing channels and systems within health services as part of the service’s work. The lead provider would need to be able to ensure effective clinical systems/supervision and IT links between the service and health services.

People living with severe mental illness (SMI), learning disabilities (LD) and autistic spectrum condition (ASC), face some of the greatest health inequality gaps in England. The average life expectancy for someone with a long-term mental health illness is at least 15-20 years shorter than for someone without and it is estimated that for people with SMI, 2 in 3 deaths are from physical illnesses that can be prevented. On average men with LD die 23 years earlier than men without a LD and for women it’s 27 years earlier. Autistic people die on average 16 years earlier than the general population . Poorer physical health is for the majority of people due to preventable illnesses.
