Integrated Commissioning Hub Market Position Statement

The Care Act and the Children and Families Act sets out a legal requirement for all Local Authorities to promote people’s well-being for better outcomes.

Whilst Dudley MBC has developed a high level market position statement we have intend to integrated our Market Position Statement within the Boroughs Joint Strategic Assessment which is currently been refreshed.

The Market Position Statement provides a detailed vision for the Dudley Social Care Market relating to our future commissioning intentions strategically and inter-jointly for all our commissioned services regarding early help, prevention and wellbeing support as well as information about the local communities within the Dudley borough.

Following on the introduction of the Integrated Commissioning Hub, we have brought together the commissioning functions of Children and Young People, Adult Social Care and Public Health. This will and already is significantly increasing opportunities to join up commissioning activity and enable the authority and its residents to benefit from more effective and efficient commissioned services.

Therefore the MPS covers Children and Young People and Public Health and not just Adult Social Care. The council is committed to stimulating a diverse active market where innovation is encouraged and rewarded and where poor practice is actively discouraged.

Dudley’s commitment continues to contribute to the overall plan and aspiration of delivering a community council.
