Transforming care and Care and Treatment Reviews

Transforming care is about making health and care services better for people with learning disabilities who have mental health conditions or behaviour challenges.

Care and Treatment Reviews (CTR’s)  are designed to help people lead fulfilling and safe lives in the their communities whenever possible, with less need for long stays in hospital and similar places.  CTR’s are used for hhildren and adults with learning disabilities.  They are a way of checking whether someone needs to go into hospital or if their care and treatment can be provided in the community.

The easy read Transforming Care document explains the process in more detail and highlights your right to request a CTR:  Transforming-Care-leaflet
