Can you help transform care for people with learning disabilities?

Then we need to hear from you…

StockPhoto - 81As part of the Transforming Care Programme 2016, Nottinghamshire has been chosen to lead the way in improving services for people with learning difficulties and/ or autism, who display behaviour that challenges.

In order to do this,  we need your views about what works and what doesn’t.  Together we can transform and deliver the right services for the future.

Nottinghamshire is one of five areas nationally which has been selected by NHS England to lead the way in helping to change how we provide care. This includes:

  • Reducing the number of people that are admitted to hospital unnecessarily
  • Improving access to interventions to prevent a health crisis
  • Putting in place the right support for those who need help in a crisis.

We are consulting on plans that will support people to stay in their community near family and friends rather than living in hospitals for long periods of time.

Our aim is to transform care and support for individuals with a learning disability and/or autism who display behaviour that challenges including those with a mental health condition so that their care is focused on keeping them healthy, well and supported in the community.

To do this, services in local communities will be strengthened meaning there will be more community beds and fewer longer term admissions.

How you can get involved:

The consultation runs from 29 February until 20 May (midnight) 2016.
