Extra Care Brochures and Market Position Statements
We are pleased to share our Market Position Statements (MPSs). We know that current circumstances present significant challenges, as well as opportunities, for the County Council, our partners and providers. To help respond to this, and plan for the future, our collection of MPSs provide insight into key market intelligence, information about the local economy, and current and future commissioning plans. The MPSs are, in summary, our account of the current shape of the adult social care market in Hampshire. They outline our:
- Core principles of business
- Commissioning priorities
- Current resources and provision
- Promises to care providers across Hampshire
About Market Position Statements
The Care Act 2014 sets out the law around market development in adult social care. It includes duties and responsibilities for local authorities to facilitate a diverse, sustainable, high-quality market for their whole local population, including those who pay for their own care.
The Care and Support Statutory Guidance emphasises the local authority role in leading and communicating a shared understanding of local care and support needs and supply. It suggests that local authorities meet their duties by developing a published Market Position Statement together with providers and stakeholders. MPSs are for those who already provide care, as well as those who would like to become providers.
MPSs should support providers to make effective business decisions and encourage innovative responses to local need. Our MPSs form part of the County Council’s ongoing engagement with providers, and service users, across health and social care.
