Leeds City Council Market Position Statement

/, Learning Disability, Mental Health, Older People, PSI/Leeds City Council Market Position Statement

Leeds City Council has published the Leeds Integrated Market Position Statement 2019-22

This is the first Integrated Market Position Statement and the first time that Leeds City Council’s Adults and Health Directorate, Children and Families Directorate and NHS Leeds Clinical Commissioning Group have jointly stated their commissioning intentions and vision for care and support services in the coming years.

The purpose of a Market Position Statement is to outline what services are currently delivered within a local authority area and to signal to the care market further development opportunities for care and support services in the area.

Market Position Statements were introduced as part of local authority market shaping duties under the Care Act (2014) and they are a starting point for market engagement and facilitation.

This document gives an overview of their ambitions for ‘a strong economy and a compassionate city’, the evidence base for commissioning (such as how predicted population changes will impact on demand for care and support services), an overview of the financial position across the health and care system, their approach to commissioning and quality management, current and future commissioning intentions, the health and care workforce in Leeds and finally, how providers can engage with them.

Leeds City Council welcomes your views both on this document and how they can further develop services and support.  You’ll find contact details and ways to engage at the end of this document.
