Market Position Statement

Adult Services - horticultureDoncaster Adult Services, Public Health and Doncaster Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) are committed to building effective and supportive relationships with our local health and social care providers to better meet the needs of our local community, service users and patients. 

The Market Position Statement is the first step towards growing a working relationship with the local provider marketplace to ensure better and more effective outcomes for the people of Doncaster.

Doncaster's One Page Market Position Statement 

The Market Position Statement is a tool for providers of health and social care services in Doncaster to understand the current and future needs of service users and our local communities. It will translate key local, regional and national strategic directives, including the intentions outlined in Doncaster’s Adult Services Commissioning Strategy, to enable organisations to forward plan their services, giving focus to the areas of greater need and priority. The information shared on these pages will assist care and support service providers to effectively plan their provision and identify opportunities for business development in the marketplace based on predicted demand on services.

Key strategic values will be shared with the local provider market to support growth and improvement in practice to ensure high quality care and support services in Doncaster.

Epidemiological and demographic data for current and future local populations will be available to support the identification of the emergent needs of individuals and communities in Doncaster.

Key government priorities are shaping the future requirements of services at a local level; the Care and Support Bill 2012 emphasises key elements including choice and control, independence, prevention and earlier intervention and more personalised services. This document will translate national requirements to add real meaning to requirements of the local market place.

Doncaster Council and NHS Doncaster Clinical Commissioning Group’s (CCG) commissioners of social care, public health and health care services are keen to work with our local market to ensure there is sufficient choice and quality for service users and carers. Individuals are central to the services around them and person centred services will ensure needs are met whilst promoting reablement and independence.

Adult Services - doing the ironingThere will be a more positive working relationship with our local provider market and providers will be empowered through better communication and information and by building opportunities for coproduction and on-going positive engagement between the commissioners and local provider organisations.

The one page Market Position Statement was developed to give providers a quick and easy to read overview of the priorities of adult services, public health and the CCG. It has been developed to reflect the priorities, values and the outcomes that we want to achieve for the people of Doncaster in a short and accessible document.

The information pulled together on these pages has been developed by Adult Services Commissioning Team in collaboration with commissioning representatives from Public Health and NHS Doncaster CCG. If you would like to discuss the content of any of these pages, please contact:
