Type: Paper

Joint working with others on market shaping, whether they be other local authorities, CCGs or Foundation Trusts, can be a sensible approach for both commissioners and the providers operating in that market.

This paper is for health and social care commissioners looking to work together to develop a co-ordinated or place-based approach to market shaping.  It explores the importance of developing a place-based approach to shaping the health and care market, looking at what this means for health and social care organisations.   It maps the breadth of current relationships between commissioning agencies and examines their relative strengths and weaknesses.
