Dear FOI (NHS South East London ICB),

Clarification Request

1. Questions 4 and 5 appear to just relate to Learning Disabilities. Do questions 1 – 3 also only relate to individuals with Learning
Disabilities, or do they cover a wider cohort?
Answer: questions 1-3 do not relate to specifics more so asking about the procurement arrangements for Nursing Homes and Domiciliary care contracts.
4-5 yes they relate to the categories of Learning disabilities, autism and epilepsy.

2. Could you also clarify what is being referred to in question 4 -
β€˜Whether there is a PBS provider framework and intentions to operate a
