What does it do?
Transforming care is the work that started after the abuse of people with a learning disability at Winterbourne View hospital. It is about improving care and support for people with a learning disability and/or autism who display behaviour that can challenge, including those with a mental health condition. The Transforming Care work has 3 big aims: • Making sure there are better services in the community so less people need to go into hospitals • Making sure people don’t stay in hospitals longer than they need to • Making sure people get good quality care and support in hospital and in the community The Transforming Care work is about hospitals that are for people with mental health problems or behaviour that is challenging. It is not about general hospitals where people go if they are hurt or ill. Although it is important to us that people get good quality care and support in these hospitals too.
Who is it for?
Transforming care is about improving the lives of children, young people and adults with a learning disability, autism or both. In Bradford, Airedale, Wharfedale and Craven we are using the programme to continue to transform services to contribute towards improving the lives of all people with a learning disability, autism or both, their families and friends.
Transforming Care is a three year programme (2016 – 2019). There is a Transforming Care Partnership Board who meets regularly to oversee the work of the programme, led by the three CCG’s and Bradford Council. We also have a Transforming Care Reference Group with family carers, advocates and people with learning disabilities and autism. This group are making sure that people who use services now or might use them in the future are involved in planning and making decisions about how we can make them better. If you would like to help us to make things better for people with learning disabilities, autism or both, please get in touch via the contact details below, we need your help.
