Any capable provider may come forward by 3rd March 2022 to engage with the CCG. If it is the case that Certitude - Shirley Gardens is the only provider capable of delivering the services described, then the CCG will look to award a further contract to Certitude - Shirley Gardens for up to 12 months starting on 1st April 2022. During 2022, it is anticipated that NWL CCG will be succeeded by an Integrated Care Board (ICB). Any future contract and/or procurement opportunity may therefore be in the name of the ICB.
