Market Position Statement

Lancashire County Council's Market Position Statement (MPS) is a consultation document that is a stepping stone to a more detailed statement that will address key issues across the whole of the health and social care system for Lancashire and South Cumbria.

The purpose of the MPS is to provide information about the adult social care market in Lancashire so that current and prospective providers understand the local context, what is likely to change and where opportunities might arise in the future.

It will set out the key pressures for adult social care and our vision for the future. It also sets out the system pressures within the health and social care sector across the Integrated Care System (ICS) as it is our ambition that this statement will evolve over time to become a system-wide market position statement.

The MPS is for both existing and potential providers with the purpose of helping them shape their business plans to support the council's vision for adult social care in the future.

The MPS will be updated on an ongoing basis as new information, policies, strategies or other relevant information becomes available.

We firmly believe that a co-production approach is the best way to engage with stakeholders to develop new and innovative solutions, improve pathways and outcomes for citizens, and in particular to address the financial pressures on a system wide basis. 

We will be holding a series of events, workshops and meetings over the coming weeks to engage with colleagues and partners to receive feedback on this document and to undertake some of the more detailed analysis that is required to enable the statement to represent the whole system view.
