Decision details

Extension of the NYCC Care Home (Nursing & Residential) Approved Provider List

Decision Maker: Corporate Director of Health and Adult Services

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: Yes


To seek permission to extend the existing Approved Provider List (APL) to ensure continued delivery of statutory services.


To extend the Approved Provider List for Care Homes and Homes with Nursing from 1 July 2021 to 30 June 2022.

Reasons for the decision:

This will allow time to pilot some of the new ways of commissioning services in order to inform the longer term intentions in relation to these services.
It is also important to consider the markets ability to respond to any tendering exercise in the current climate. The services delivered via the APLs have been impacted significantly by the Covid-19 pandemic. The providers continue to feel the effects of the pandemic and the longer term impact on the market is still unknown. These are key factors which need to be taken into consideration to ensure North Yorkshires commissioning strategy supports a sustainable market that meets the needs of people
