It covers adult health care for people with Learning Disabilities, Mental Health issues, Physical Disabilities, and also the services required for the Older and more vulnerable People.

  • Key principles and outcomes for Adult Social Care services
  • Future needs of service users and changes in demand
  • Views of service users and carers in terms of the support they wish to receive
  • Current pattern of service provision and use
  • Anticipated future plans and service needs

The Market Position Statement is linked to and informed by a range of other documents such as Commissioning Strategies and the Joint Strategic Needs Analysis (JSNA) which include more detailed information and statistics.
