Integration of Services between

NHS England and the Police and Crime Commissioner for Avon and Somerset


Cliff Hoyle │ Health and Justice Commissioning – Mental Health │ NHS England South

Marc Hole │Head of Commissioning & Partnerships │ Office of the Avon and Somerset PCC


Achieving economies of scale through shared activity and simplified structures results in more available frontline resources across a wider area.

This free seminar will describe the innovation, planning, implementation and future opportunities for the integrated commissioning of Drug and Alcohol Arrest Referral and Liaison and Diversion services in Avon and Somerset.  This is the first co-commissioning of these types of services outside of a devolution area (Manchester) and has attracted national attention.

Commissioners will share their perspective and discuss how lived experience has been central to development, procurement and quality assurance of the service.

Key areas to be explored will include: agreeing a commissioning plan joint specification; key points and lessons learnt with procurement and mobilisation; innovation in peer support and female specific pathways and expansion of traditional custody activity into courts and the community and speakers will then share some opportunities for the future using the new infrastructure.
