Providers invited to help transform adult care and support services in Cornwall

Care and support providers, community and voluntary sector organisations from across the country are being invited to transform adult social care services with Cornwall Council and NHS Kernow.

With the need to make the changes in adult social care to bring services closer to the communities they serve, organisations are invited to a market positioning event on 25 February 2019 to get more information on the Council’s plans and help shape care and support services that meet the needs of people living in Cornwall.

The resulting market position statement will set out how the NHS and the council plans to commission services and this event gives the opportunity to develop the current draft further before its publication.

It is intended to support providers to develop their market offer in line with how the council and NHS Kernow plan to commission, exploring creative solutions and opportunities which genuinely offer people more choice and control over their lives.

Cornwall Council portfolio holder for Adults Rob Rotchell said: “This is a great opportunity for providers and commissioners to come together to work in partnership, making sure that the services for people in Cornwall improve outcomes for those with care and support needs both now and in the future.

“At the centre of this is our intention to develop a resilient and sustainable care market that supports and promotes strong communities so that people live their lives as successfully, independently and safely as possible.”

“I urge as many of providers as possible to come along to this event”

John Groom, NHS Kernow’s Director for Integrated Care, said: “Across Cornwall there are people and organisations with huge expertise in providing care and support which we can draw on to develop this market position statement.

“Cornwall Council and NHS Kernow’s work with providers will develop a sustainable market place in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly to deliver high quality care and value for money.”

Places are limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis and booking will be available soon through Eventbrite. Find out more on the Market Postion Statement Co-Production Event page.
