Are there any opportunities for care providers to diversify business and meet any gaps in service provision?

The Market Position Statement provides information on the Council and East Riding of Yorkshire CCG plans for commissioning social care and support services for children, families and adults. This gives providers and potential providers an understanding of how the market is currently operating and the future vision for developing the market so that they can consider tailoring their services to meet the need.

The Market Position Statement will be published, reviewed and updated regularly to help providers to plan their services effectively, to develop the social care market and to support sustained improvement:

What is the Market Sustainability and Fair Cost of Fund?

In March 2022 the Governments published guidance on the Market Sustainability and Fair Cost of Fund. This was one of the first steps towards the implementation of the adult social care reforms which were set out in ‘People at the Heart of Care’. The purpose of the funding is to support local authorities to prepare their care markets for reform and provide support to move towards paying providers a fair cost of care.

A condition of receiving funding was that local authorities had to submit to the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) in October 2022 cost of care exercises for 65+ care homes and 18+ domiciliary care and a provisional market sustainability plan.

The DHSC expects local authorities to continue working and sharing information with care providers and in line with this expectation the two cost of care reports are published here. The market sustainability plan has been finalised and is available to download below.

In common with many local authorities the council has reservations about the results of the cost of care exercise, particularly about the timing of the exercise and the variations in the data submitted. There are significant concerns about the affordability of the findings.
