Evaluation of Nottingham City CCG BME Prostate Cancer Project

Leave a comment

Nottingham City Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is looking for a supplier to carry out an evaluation of the Nottingham City BME Prostate Cancer Project. The aim of the evaluation is: to determine whether the pilot is meeting its aims and objectives; to determine the successes of the pilot; to determine barriers to success; to determine whether this service delivery model is the best way to target the target population; to determine whether this service delivery model can be applied to other demographic groups and/or other health needs; to determine whether any good practice can be adopted by mainstream local services to make them more accessible to the target population; to determine whether there is any learning to be shared nationally. It is expected that the evaluation will: measure the impact of all the components of the pilot and whether they work effectively; evidence whether the pilot has helped to increase awareness of prostate cancer in Nottingham; evidence whether the pilot has helped to increase awareness of the health needs of the BME community in Nottingham; evidence whether the pilot has helped to increase awareness of prostate cancer in the BME community of Nottingham City; evidence whether the pilot has helped to increase the BME community’s understanding of prostate cancer; evidence whether the BME community feel more supported to access health services; evidence whether there has been significant access to the service by the BME community; evidence whether the service has been accessed from outside Nottingham City CCG; evidence whether there has been significant access to clinical tests by the BME community; evidence outcomes for patients accessing clinical tests; evidence participant satisfaction; evidence staff satisfaction; include an analysis of the outcomes identified in the outcomes framework for the pilot, including health and well-being indicators. There is an expectation that the evaluator will start work on the evaluation prior to the pilot starting. This is so they can ascertain what the current level of awareness of prostate cancer is in the BME community in Nottingham City.

Deadline for proposals: 29 February

Funding available: £25,000
