NHS England Health & Justice South (South East) wishes to recommission Mental Health and Learning Disability services at HMP/YOI Bronzefield, a closed women's local prison in Ashford, Surrey. The prison has an operational capacity of 572, and accommodates a highly complex and varied population that consists of mothers and babies, young offenders, life and long term sentenced women, short to mid-term sentenced women, foreign nationals and women on remand. Since the closure of HMP Holloway in June 2016, HMP/YOI Bronzefield is now one of the largest women's prisons in Europe.

The mental health service will deliver a fully integrated and comprehensive mental health service to all patients (including those with a learning disability and / or personality disorder) based on careful and systematic assessment of need. The service will take the form of an integrated stepped care model for mental health which will enable patients to flow seamlessly between mild to moderate and severe and enduring stages, based on clinical need and risk at different points in time. The mental health team will deliver a service model with the flexibility to react to, and support, the patient's continuum of need.

The maximum annual contract value will be 826 000 GBP (1 025 000 GBP in year 1). The contract duration will be three years (with the option to extend by up to a further two years), due to commence on 1.4.2018.
