The School Health Service is commissioned from Kent Community Health NHS Foundation Trust; it provides the 5-19 Healthy Child Programme which provides universal and targeted support for children and young people of school age.


The current contract value is £2M and is funded from the ring-fenced Public Health Grant, the service was procured in 2019 and was commissioned to start from Jan 1st, 2020, on a three year contract with an option to extend for a further two years.


The first three years of the contract end on 31 December 2022 and, after review, it is proposed that the current contract is extended for a further two years until 31 December 2024 as further time is required to re-evaluate the specification to fully reflect the changing nature of the service as a result of COVID, etc.
