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.
