Herefordshire

The Herefordshire Transforming Care Partnership (TCP) plan includes redesign and investment into clinically led and integrated community services which can identify and intervene to avoid crisis for people with a learning disability and/or autism. It will also look at new housing related supported care to support people in the community rather than in residential placements.

To achieve these plans, there is a need for significant workforce development alongside a recruitment and retention campaign with current and future service providers.

Arden

The Coventry, Warwickshire and Solihull Transforming Care Partnership (TCP) is committed to a future where people with a learning disability and/or autism:

  • are not put in a position where they become unwell because of their environment;
  • do not have to go into hospital unless absolutely necessary;
  • are supported with their needs, emotions and feelings;
  • are supported to grow and develop;
  • are not taken away from their family and friends and don’t feel isolated;
  • live in their local community;
  • go out in their local community;
  • work in their local community;
  • are seen as a valued member of society.

Building on the existing model of care in Solihull the TCP is continuing to improve the community support available to people with a learning disability and/or autism.

This includes investing in community support for people who are at risk of, or have been in contact with, the criminal justice system, and those with autistic spectrum disorder; as well as developing all age intensive support services for children and adults. Specialist accommodation will be developed to help people to return to live where they want to and where they can be looked after.

The plan also includes a programme of workforce development which focuses on making sure that personalised care and support is available to everyone.

Birmingham

The Birmingham Transforming Care Partnership (TCP) has been created to develop and deliver a city wide three year transformation plan for people with a learning disability and/or autism or mental health issues who display behaviour that challenges.

The plan builds on the work already done to improve services in the community to make sure that care is centred on the person with a learning disability and/or autism and their family. Birmingham TCP has identified some areas which it will work with so that people can be discharged safely from inpatient facilities to live meaningful lives in the community. These are:

  • developing and improving intensive and crisis support services with health and social care teams, seven days a week for children and adults;
  • working with people with a learning disability and/or autism, their carers and families to make plans for times of crisis or relapse;
  • exploring how it might develop a learning disabilities service which links with local voluntary groups to provide an advocacy, training and information HUB.

Northamptonshire

The Northamptonshire Transforming Care Partnership’s (TCP) plan focuses on prevention and early intervention.
In our area we have a comparatively small number of hospital beds for people with learning disabilities and/or autism so work will concentrate on strengthening the services it provides in the community so that people can stay in their homes for as long as possible, even when they are unwell.

To do this the TCP needs to move the money we spend on hospital beds into different types of community based services.

The plan details how the TCP will:

  • make sure that health and social care services work closely together to keep people healthy and able to access the right services when they are needed;
  • work with the organisations that provide services for the TCP to make sure they have the right skills;
  • plan and pay for more supported living options including short term residential beds specifically for people with autism;
  • support people to use personal budgets so that they have greater choice and control over the services they need;
  • make sure that where hospital care is needed procedures are in place so that people are discharged as soon as possible;
  • work with people with learning disabilities and/or autism , their families and carers and local organisations to make these changes happen.

The Northamptonshire Learning Disability Transformation Board will monitor the TCP’s progress against the plan and the things it said it would do.

For more information about the plans visit the Nene Clinical Commissioning Group website.

Black Country

The Black Country Transformation Care Partnership’s (TCP) plan aims to transform both the types of care and life opportunities for people with a learning disability and/or autism who are regularly admitted to assessment and treatment units or are currently living in specialist hospital accommodation.

This will include working with health and social care partners to make sure it has a well trained workforce who can provide positive outcomes for people with a learning disability and/or autism whereby they feel part of the community.

Derbyshire

The Derbyshire and Derby City Transforming Care Partnership’s (TCP) plan focuses on its belief that every person with a learning disability and/or autism in Derbyshire is entitled to the same opportunity to lead their life, as valued and respected members of their community in the same way as everyone else.

The TCP’s plan details how it will provide personalised support to make sure people with a learning disability and/or autism are able to be as independent as possible and able to access education and employment opportunities leading to a meaningful occupation that builds long term sustainability for people.

It will reinvest its resources into a new community approach to make sure that any inpatient services or beds in other residential services are only used after people have had intensive community support to live in a place they can call home and that those people most at risk of receiving their care and support in high cost institutional care are supported to secure their rights, independence, choice and inclusion.

Nottinghamshire

The Nottinghamshire Transforming Care Partnership’s (TCP) plan aims to keep people with a learning disability and/or autism healthy, well and supported in the local community so that in-patient services are only used where community settings cannot provide safe and suitable alternatives.

The Nottinghamshire plan aims to create a range of options for people in the community who are at risk of crisis or who need extra support, such as residential crisis or respite facilities, as well as high quality placements for people who are leaving long-stay hospital care.

As well as these developments the TCP plans to improve and increase its community assessment and treatment teams, working closer with related services, and giving community based staff the skills to provide positive, proactive and preventative care to people with a learning disability and/or autism.

Nottinghamshire TCP was one of six sites who began developing plans in 2015 and from February to May 2016 it asked local people, particularly people with lived experience of a learning disability and/or autism what they thought of the plans. The TCP is looking at those findings at the moment. It will use the feedback to revise plans and shape local services in line with the views of people with a learning disability and/or autism, their families and carers and aim to publish a revised plan in easy read format by September 2016.

Suffolk

Suffolk Transforming Care Partnership’s (TCP) plan aims to make sure that everyone living in Suffolk can enjoy the same opportunities and experiences. The TCP’s plans have been developed using three key documents:

  • Family 2020 which focuses on quality, efficiency, integration and ‘early help’
  • Children and Young People’s Emotional Wellbeing
  • Joint Learning Disabilities Strategy for Adults

The plan looks at the life of a person with a learning disability and/or autism and includes preschool, through school and into adult and later life, making sure that people can access main stream and specialist health, education and social care services when they need them.

The TCP will offer positive behaviour support to families, schools and care providers, and look at ways it can continually develop how it plans and pays for the services that people would like to have in the community – such as supported housing support at home, respite and short breaks, in addition to day and evening and weekend activities.

Norfolk

Norfolk and Great Yarmouth and Waveney Transforming Care Partnership’s (TCP) plan sets out to make sure that more services for people with a learning disability and/or autism are provided in the community and closer to home, rather than in hospital settings. To do this the TCP will:

  • develop more health and social care community support to provide an alternative to admission to hospital care;
  • work with people with a learning disability and/or autism to develop an admission gateway process and care and treatment reviews so as to reduce the number of admissions and speed up discharges;
  • make sure the right care is in the right place by working with local authorities and other providers to guarantee high quality community-based alternatives to hospital, meaning more people can get the support they need close to home;
  • Increase the skills of our workforce by working with patient and carer groups to address gaps in skills, best practice and staff awareness of learning disabilities and/or autism;
  • improve the quality of care by working with providers and commissioners to make sure they are meeting care standards or an individual’s personal objectives;
  • improve the amount of data and information collected and shared by public agencies to make sure that a person’s outcomes and destinations are monitored, and that local public services can be held to account for their progress.
