Is Key decision?: Yes
Is subject to call in?: Yes
To seek permission to extend the existing
Approved Provider List to ensure continued delivery services until
31 March 2024
To extend the Approved Provider List (APL) for
up to 3 years from 1 April 2022 until 31 March 2025.
Extending the APL will allow for the
transformation work to be conducted as well as allow time for a
full review of the contract and a re-procurement to take
The APL will continue to operate in the same way so there will be no alteration to the overall scope of the contracts. During the extension period the council will continue to accept applications to the provider list. This will ensure the APL does not prevent providers from applying to join the list. During the extension period work will commence on the re-procurement of the arrangements.
Re-procurement was considered. This was
rejected as Primary Care priorities for 2021/2022 are the delivery
of the vaccination programme and support for the ongoing COVID
response, as a result there is insufficient resource to carry out
the required procurement process.
