Background to NDPP

The Local Authorities and the NHS Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) covering Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire (BNSSG) have offered the NDPP across BNSSG since 2017. Since this time practices have become engaged with the programme, referring patients in good numbers and the programme has achieved a good reputation for delivering a professional and high quality service.

The provider of the NDPP, Living Well, Taking Control (LWTC), a Limited Liability Partnership, have delivered the NDPP in our region since 2017, but as of August 1st 2019 the new delivery partner will be WW (formerly Weight Watchers) who have been awarded the contract to deliver the NDPP to August 2022. The transition from incumbent to new provider is currently underway.

A change of provider will need careful continued oversight to minimise disruption to both patients and practitioners. The NDPP steering group chaired by the NDPP Project Coordinator, meets monthly to ensure the programme is well managed. The group comprises representatives of primary care, the BNSSG Healthier Together Sustainability and Transformation Partnership (STP), BNSSG CCG and the Service Provider(s). Further, ongoing review of referral numbers is essential in order to ensure the programme meets but does not exceed targets set by NHS England (NHSE). Regular communications will continue with NHSE to ensure these targets are considered, action plans put in place and any programme issues raised and addressed.

Use of vehicle

If the nature of the duties require you to travel on Council business on a regular basis, so you must either have a current driving licence and provide a car, or have access to appropriate means of travel.

If you use your vehicle on authorised Council business, you will receive a mileage payment based on the Inland Revenue Authorised Mileage Allowance Payment Scheme (AMAPS). The allowance is provided on the condition that your own insurance covers you for business use and indemnifies the Council against claim (including those concerning passengers) arising out of the use of the vehicle on official business. You will also be eligible for a car loan if you meet the criteria within the Council’s Car Loan Scheme.
