Swindon and Wiltshire

Swindon and Wiltshire Transforming Care Partnership’s (TCP) plan focuses on prevention and developing a new way of caring for people with complex needs who have a learning disability and/or autism.

The TCP’s plan includes planning for a crisis before it happens, new learning disabilities intensive support services, an emergency pre care and treatment review protocol and the use of local mental health inpatient beds and new specialist flats for people needing to move on from hospital

The plan includes investment in services for people with autism, improving the skills of the workforce and delivering creative options for day activity and short breaks. The TCP will support the development of community assessment and treatment, continuing the use of local hospital options. When low and medium secure placements are needed it plans to work in partnership to deliver options that are closer to home.

Gloucestershire

The Gloucestershire Transforming Care Partnership’s (TCP) plan describes how it will transform services for people of all ages with a learning disability and/or autism who display behaviour that challenges, including those with a mental health condition.

The TCP’s plan focuses on building the right community based services by engaging and involving people with a learning disability and/or autism and their families and carers as well as providers, commissioners and other services including social care such as housing and education.

By 2018/19 the TCP aims to have more services provided in the community and where people do need to spend time in hospital it will focus on getting them back to near their homes on discharge.

Bristol

Bristol Transforming Care Partnership’s (TCP) plan aims to improve the life opportunities for people with a learning disability and/or autism and is based on a strong understanding of the needs and aspirations of people with a learning disability and/or autism, their families and carers, and on expert advice from clinicians, providers and others. To make the plan a reality the TCP knows that changes need to take place right across the whole of health and social care services.

The TCP’s vision for the future is that people with a learning disability and/or autism, as appropriate, will live in their own homes, on their own or living with the people they want to live with, whether family or friends, supported by staff who they have chosen, and with access to employment/ education and a choice of things to do during the day, evenings and weekends, in the same way as any other person.

Over the period of this plan, there will be major changes in the way services are delivered, and family carers will be able to choose whether to arrange support for their family members themselves or to use other services.

Somerset

Somerset Transforming Care Partnership’s (TCP) plan brings together the aims of all the organisations involved in health and social care in Somerset.

The TCP knows that transforming care can only happen by working in partnership with people who have lived experience of these services, their families and carers, as well as other key organisations such as housing, public health and the criminal justice system.

The main aims in the plan focus on how the TCP will:

  • work together to review how the Somerset Learning Disability Partnership Board (LDPB) works and produce an action plan with clear priorities as well as easy read communications and publications.
  • develop new ways of working with the various groups and panels which look after the care of people with a learning disability and/or autism.
  • take care of funding arrangements for people’s care including how it can help more people use personal health budgets, monitoring services and how health and social care money can be brought together to benefit local people.

Cornwall

Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Transforming Care Partnership’s (TCP) plan focusses on providing early care and intervention, together with new types of housing and care schemes that can provide long term solutions for people with a learning disability and/or autism who are experiencing distress and are behaving in ways that traditionally challenge services.

The key areas of local development include the introduction of a service for people diagnosed with autism, providing more crisis services in the community and a training programme that includes staff, communities and public services to raise awareness of issues relating to behaviours that challenge.

For those people who need more complex care and support the TCP will make sure it has a solid way of planning that care which will provide services in the community so as to avoid a hospital inpatient stay wherever possible.

To check that the TCP’s plan is working it will continually check how people are being supported in the community and ask those people who use services, their families and carers for their feedback.

Devon

Devon Transforming Care Partnership’s (TCP) plan sets out a vision for people of all ages with a learning disability and/or autism living in Devon, Torbay and Plymouth to have their needs met so they are happy, healthy and safe. Nobody should have to stay in hospital longer than they need to and people should have good plans in place so that they can live within the community they know, with the right support.

The NHS and the local councils across Devon have come together to produce the plan – and the TCP has worked closely with people living in the area to do this. The TCP’s plan will help do three things:

  • Bring people who are currently in hospital home or to a place of their choice so they are not living away from their local communities, making it easier for people to see their families and other loved ones.
  • Support people to stay in the community so they don’t need a hospital in the future by providing a choice of local housing care and support.
  • Help people live good lives in Devon.

To do this the TCP will make sure that individual plans are made with people to meet their specific needs and if people need help and support they can have an individual budget to buy services.

The plan is to make sure that it has the right providers locally so that people can choose the right support for them. The TCP aims to work well across all services to make sure that people get the right skilled support. This will mean providing training and support, especially in relation to autism and positive behavioural support.

The TCP also plans to bridge gaps in support, for example by providing a small but focussed post diagnostic autism support service. This will mean looking at how it can attract more resources to Devon and also use money in better ways to deliver what is needed.

Surrey

Surrey Transforming Care Partnership’s (TCP) plan has been developed with people of all ages with a learning disability and/or autism and their families and carers to make sure it provides better care and better health outcomes.

Buckinghamshire

Buckinghamshire Transforming Care Partnership’s (TCP) plan aims to make sure that people with a learning disability and/or autism are healthier, offered more choice and control and have greater support and independence in their local communities.

As a first step Buckinghamshire’s specialist learning disability health service will be transferring to a new provider from the summer of 2016. The new contract will deliver more intensive support in the community, with services eventually moving from five days to seven days a week. To do this the TCP will give staff the skills to help people earlier and support them to stay in a community setting.

For those people who do need to go into hospital, the new contract will mean people are treated in a larger, state-of-the-art centre, providing people with a learning disability and/or autism and staff access to a wider range of specialist support and facilities while in hospital, but also greater support in their community.

The TCP is also looking into a shared ownership housing scheme which aims to improve the quality of life for people with a learning disability and/or autism and get people back into living in the community rather than in hospital.

Oxfordshire

Oxfordshire Transforming Care Partnership’s (TCP) plan aims to make sure that people with a learning disability and/or autism have a good, meaningful and “ordinary” life.

Wherever possible the TCP wants people to receive care in the community which they can access through their GP with the support of health and care co-ordinator teams when they are needed and it will improve how many people have health screening and annual health checks.

The TCP will continue to fund and learn from the adult intensive support team, which has successfully prevented all admissions since it launched in August 2015 and it is now looking into how it can include young people at risk of admission or placement breakdown into the scheme. In addition, new technologies will be explored to improve outcomes, including trialling digital personal care plans.

The TCP is committed to working together with local people which is reflected in the membership of the partnership board and subgroups. The quality subgroup is co-chaired by an expert by experience and will develop assurance activities that will be delivered by people with a learning disability and/or autism and their families and carers.

Together the TCP is transforming specialist health services for people with a learning disability and/or autism which will include transferring services away from Southern Health Foundation Trust to a new provider.
