Gateway 1 Procurement Commencement: Health Visiting and School Nursing


This report will seek Cabinet approval to commence a procurement process in relation to Health Visiting and School Nursing.


Access to Information

The report together with any other documents being considered (unless they contain exempt information) will be available for inspection 5 clear days before the decision is taken by the Cabinet. Copies are available on the Council's website or requested from Democratic Services Medway Council, Gun Wharf, Dock Road, Chatham, Kent, ME4 4TR or email If you wish to submit information to the Cabinet about the item please also contact Democratic Services.  


It is noted that the Local Authorities (Executive Arrangements)(Meetings and Access to Information)(England) Regulations 2012 requires 28 clear days’ notice of the intention to make a key decision.


On this occasion it has not been possible to provide this 28 clear days’ notice and therefore Section 10 (General Exception) of the above regulations have been complied with. It was not possible to include this report on the Forward Plan with 28 days’ notice because after this report was originally considered by Cabinet on 13 June 2023, it became apparent that the report contained incorrect information about the preferred procurement procedure.  This report corrects those errors and is therefore being re-submitted to the Cabinet for approval.
