Decision details

Consultation on Healthy Lifestyles Service provision from April 2024

Decision Maker: Leader of the Council

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes


The existing Healthy Lifestyles Service contract expires in March 2024.

In order to inform future service provision, we are seeking authorisation to conduct a public and wider stakeholder consultation exercise on proposals for a new Healthy Lifestyles Service model from April 2024.

The consultation will be used to influence any future service delivery model and what it provides.


In coming to this decision I have given due and full regard to the requirements of the public sector equality duty contained in section 149 of the Equality Act 2010 (“the Act”) by reference to the law itself and also the relevant Equality Impact Assessment, which was prepared in accordance with the requirements of the Act.


Having fully considered all the available information, I have decided to reject the alternative options and take the recommended decision to:


Approve the commencement of a consultation on a new Healthy Lifestyles Service to run between January 2023 – March 2023.



For the reasons set out in the report.
