Transforming Care for People with Learning Disabilities - Next Steps, (Next Steps) (progress report for the Transforming Care delivery Board July 2015) outlined an ambitious programme of system wide change to improve care for people with learning disabilities and/or autism, and behaviour that challenges (learning disabilities).

Care and Treatment Reviews (CTR) have been developed as part of NHS England’s commitment to transforming the services for people with learning disabilities and/ or autism who display CTR Logobehavior that challenges, including those with a mental health condition.

NHS England has published final CTR policy and guidance (also available in easy read) that outlines what a CTR is, the required standards, and how they should be done.

Debra Moore Associates can offer support and guidance to NHS England, CCG, Fast Track sites, CCG’s, Commissioners, Local Authorities and Providers so that the CTR process ensures people get the Right care, in the Right place, at the Right time.

We have a wide range of associates working with us with the experience; knowledge and skill set to help individuals and organisations meet the new agenda and performance targets.
