Lyn Bacon, chief executive of CityCare said: “We are absolutely delighted to be reappointed as the preferred provider in Nottingham City for adult services, and we look forward to continuing to work closely with our colleagues across the local health and social care system  to provide a wide range of care. 

“We have a deep sense of pride in the quality of the care we have been delivering over the last six years, which was recognised this year by the CQC as ‘outstanding’. This new contract offered by the CCG offers greater flexibility in the way we provide our services to patients and for them, better, integrated delivery".

Feedback from NHS Nottingham City CCG following the tender process praised CityCare on its consideration of and commitment to its social values in the local community, such as improving employment and training opportunities locally, promoting healthy lifestyles and working to provide a cleaner, safer environment that is more sustainable for future generations to enjoy. 

Maria Principe, director of contracting and transformation at NHS Nottingham City CCG, said: “We are very pleased to award this contract to a provider with such an established track record and clear commitment to improving the health of people in Nottingham.

“Local patients want services that reflect their individual needs and involve people in decisions that affect their care and treatment. That’s why we engaged with local people over two years to make sure that future adult services are tailored to our local population. 

“It’s very encouraging to see the plans CityCare have to invest in the local community and environment, as well as deliver more locally responsive healthcare services.”

Lyn added: “This contract award recognises our role as a social enterprise in providing sustainable services and social value to the community we serve. It offers us the opportunity to build on existing work and partnerships in the city and work towards a more integrated approach for our patients and a renewed focus on self-care and prevention of long-term health conditions.  We are confident we are able to continue to deliver outstanding care across the city and improve the lives of thousands of adults across Nottingham.”
