Council supports NHS consortium as preferred bidder for children’s health and wellbeing services in Devon
NEW Devon Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) recommended that Devon Children and Families Alliance (The Alliance) be selected as the preferred bidder for the 23.8 million-a-year contract, of which Devon County Council contributes £1.6m. The contract will be awarded for seven years from 1 April 2019, with an option to extend it for a further three years.
