Any capable provider may come forward by 3 March 2022 to engage with the CCG. If it is the case that Care UK is the only provider capable of delivering the full services described, then the CCG will look to award a further contract to Care UK for up to 12 months beyond May 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
