This report, prepared by the Institute of Public Care on behalf of the South West Regional Improvement and Efficiency Partnership, is intended to help commissioners gather intelligence on the existing market in social care in their region, then use that intelligence to create a market position statement (MPS) as a tool to ensure the market evolves to meet current and projected future need. While the particular focus is on adult social care, much of the guidance is also more broadly applicable.
