How we’ve helped 
NECS has supported NHS England (West Yorkshire) Health and Justice Commissioning Team in procuring a Non-Clinical Substance Misuse Service at both HMP Wakefield and HMYOI Wetherby. The procurement has acquired a significant reduction in contractual spend, from £2.83million to £1.64million, i.e. £1.1million reduction over the three year contract term. In addition to the financial savings achieved which support QIPP targets, combining the services into a single contract will introduce efficiencies in managing contracts, alongside consistency in delivery and quality across the two sites.
