Return on investment tool for interventions and strategies to increase physical activity

The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE or ‘the institute’) is an independent organisation responsible for providing national guidance on promoting good health and preventing and treating disease. Within NICE the Centre for Public Health Excellence (CPHE) is responsible for producing public health guidance. In July 2011 NICE was asked by the Department of Health to develop a prototype model for local authority commissioners showing the potential return on investment (ROI) for health improvement interventions. The initial work which focused on tobacco control was published in October 2012 and is available on the NICE website at The CPHE would like to appoint a contractor to develop a further ROI tool on interventions and strategies to increase physical activity. This tool should estimate the gross and net cost savings that could be achieved by having local interventions and strategies in a given geographical area e.g. region, county or local authorities and Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs). The tool should have a user friendly interface that allows users to explore the short, medium and long term impact of different combinations of interventions and strategies (i.e. to explore the impact of different scenarios). The contractor will be provided with funding to develop the ROI tool, accompanying technical reports and user guides, and may be required to attend up to three regional workshops to demonstrate use of the tool and provide help and support to those using it. The contractor will be multidisciplinary and capable of providing high quality analyses and evidence to decision makers within very tight timescales. This is an exciting and challenging opportunity for a high calibre team to contribute to the work of the Institute.
