Transforming Care Approach

Transforming Care Approach

Transforming care is a national programme led by NHS England which is all about
improving health and care services so that more people with learning disabilities
and/or autism can live in the community, with the right support, close to home and
have the same opportunities as anyone else.

The programme of work will ensure that families are:
* getting the support they need to live long and healthy lives
* being treated with the same dignity and respect
* having a home within their community
* being able to develop and maintain relationships and
* getting the support they need for to have a healthy, safe and fulfilling life. 

New ways of working are being established to help families get the right help at the
right time. One example of this is a greater focus on the Care-Co- ordination role to
help families access and understand the offers of support available to them across
health and social care systems. More details about the programme are set out here;

Education and Health Care Plans
Health, education and social care systems are working hard to work together to
share pathways and processes that work together and are easier to understand. An
Education and Health Care Plan (EHCP) will help families work with professionals
based on an assessment of individual need. More details about EHCPs are here:

Care Education and Treatment Reviews
Where children or young people are at risk of a hospital admission a Care Education
and Treatment Review (CETR) may be called by the family or professional. When a
CETR is called this means that the family and professionals all get together to review
the needs and requirements of the young person and decide on the best next steps
by working together. A clinical expert and a family member who has had similar
experiences from another area will be present to help planning with fresh eyes. Please see the download called My care treatment to help planning and understanding of the process;

Please see  the full CETRs toolkit is available on the NHS England website and in the download section.
