Please could you confirm when the IAPT service will next be re-tendered on the basis of the current contract duration?

There are currently no plans to retender the contract as the focus of the planning is where the service will be managed and commissioned from and when those decisions are made it will be for those organisations to decide the future commissioning arrangements.

We have no clients waiting more than 6 months for access to IAPT


Please could you confirm if you commission any digital IAPT services (either as a sub-contract to the overall provider or as a separate contract), and if so who the digital provider is and what services they provide to patients, and the cost and duration of this contract and when it will next be tendered.

SilverCloud is commissioned across Greater Manchester to deliver step 2 IAPT services.  As they are the only provider of these services the value of the contract is commercially sensitive.  As with local IAPT services the future commissioning arrangements of this service will be agreed once the re-organisation of services across Greater Manchester has been agreed
