NWL CCG is currently of the view that the services described are capable of being provided only by Barnardo's - Harrow Horizons as they ensure integration with schools, the community within Harrow and NHS providers to serve the target group. NWL CCG is considering options for making future arrangements for these services beyond March 2023 which may involve looking to tender the opportunity in the future. Any capable provider may come forward by 4 March 2022 to engage with the CCG. If it is the case that Barnardo's - Harrow Horizons is the only provider capable of delivering the services described, then the CCG will look to award a further contract to Barnardo's - Harrow Horizons for up to 12 months on 1st April 2022. The purpose of this notice is to be transparent about the CCG's intentions and to invite anyone interested in delivering the services described above to contact us by 4th March 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.
