Guidance to support health and social care commissioners in joint market shaping

The Institute of Public Care has developed tools and guidance to help local commissioners understand market shaping.

These include a database of market position statements and general guidance on market shaping. The guidance was developed at the request of the Department of Health, Local Government Association and the Association of Directors of Adult Social Service, working with the Care Provider Alliance. One of the six resources aimed at health and social care commissioners explores the importance of developing a place-based approach to shaping the care market.
