New CDAS (community drug and alcohol service) contract awarded to WithYou and BAC O’Connor

Press release from North Staffordshire Combined Healthcare:

Since January 2019, North Staffordshire Combined Healthcare NHS Trust, WithYou and BAC O’Connor have worked in a successful partnership to provide the current CDAS (community drug and alcohol service) for Stoke-on-Trent City Council, with Combined Healthcare as the lead provider.

Following careful consideration, North Staffordshire Combined Healthcare NHS Trust decided not to submit a bid as part of the recent tender process for the new CDAS contract, which starts in April 2024. This was a decision informed by in-depth analysis and determined by many factors. 

Following the competitive tender process, WithYou and BAC O’Connor have been commissioned by Stoke-on-Trent City Council to provide community treatment and recovery services to local people from the new contract start date.

We congratulate WithYou and BAC O’Connor on being awarded the new five year contract and we will continue in our lead provider role until 31 March 2024.
