Market Position Statement

Decision Maker: Executive

Decision status: Decision Made

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes


Purpose of Report: The purpose of the market position statement is to inform and shape the care market. This includes articulating what we as an authority would like to see developed further and what services we would like to see a reduction of. The market position statement is the start of a market shaping process to ensure services meet the needs of our population whilst taking into consideration our model of delivery and financial constraints. Market shaping is a legal requirement of the care act (2014) and is aimed to understand our local market of care providers and stimulate a diverse range of care and support services to ensure that people and their carers have choice over how their needs are met and that they are able to achieve the things that are important to them.

The Executive is asked to note and agree the content of the market position statement.


Resolved:  (i)      That the content of the market position statement be noted.


                   (ii)      That the market position statement be approved.


Reason:     A market position statement is a key element of market shaping and market shaping is a legal requirement (Care Act 2014).


                   (iii)     That authority be delegated to the Corporate Director of Adult Services and Integration and the Executive Member for Adult Social Care and Public Health to agree any minor amendments to the statement.


Reason:     The document is a complete document; however, it may need some minor amendments prior to publishing, which will be based on feedback from internal and external stakeholders and will be slight, with little impact on the document that is being presented.
