Market Position Statements

If you're a current or prospective provider of adult health and social care services in the Nottingham area, whether in the private or voluntary sector, the Market Position Statements will help to understand the background to our local market and the ways we expect it to develop.

The Market Position Statements indicate a future direction for adult health and social care provision, and show the tools and support available to current and potential providers. These documents give an overview of Social Care Services commissioned through the City Council and do not cover the wider health services commissioned through the Clinical Commissioning Groups or the NHS.  As we continue to develop more integrated health and social care services, we are hoping that future versions of the documents will be produced jointly and will therefore give a more comprehensive picture of the health and social care market.

This is the start of a dialogue between Nottingham City Council and the provider market, to help maximise business potential and increase the quality, choice and value for money of care packages for our citizens. Nottingham City Council will be publishing further documents on other key segments of the market in line with our planned Strategic Commissioning Reviews. It is planned to update these documents on a regular basis to reflect feedback from providers and changes in policy, services or technologies that have an effect on the market.

Messages to the Market

Children and Young People's Integrated Pathway Programme

The Children and Young People's Integrated Pathway Programme (CYPIPP) is a programme of joint work between Nottingham City Council and NHS Nottingham City Clinical Commissioning Group, which will encompass involvement from a wider group of partners including NHS England. The Commissioning Executive Group (CEG), part of the Health and Wellbeing Board, are the body responsible for the CYPIPP.

This document is the first communication with the Provider Market about this programme. The aim is to give early information on the number of children and families who fall within the overall scope and aim of the programme. In addition, your views are important to us therefore this is an opportunity to let you know how you can share them with us.

Transforming Care

Enhanced Care, Support and Enablement

Nottingham City Council, along with Nottingham City Clinical Commissioning Group, would like to inform providers about progress within the local Transforming Care agenda.

Both organisations are interested in developing the market to provide accommodation and support options for people who have complex learning disability and/or Autism with mental health needs. This will build upon current supported living provision to develop more bespoke services to create a more person-centred approach.

This document is for providers who are interested in good services for people with a learning disability and/or autism who display behaviour that challenges, including those with a mental health condition.

The aim of the document is to give providers information on the outcomes of recent market engagement and details of future procurement activity.
