New care plans for learning disabilities and autism announced

10th August 2016

New local plans that aim to improve the standard of support offered to people with a learning disability or autism have been announced.

NHS England, the Local Government Association and the Association of Directors of Adult Social Services will oversee the national implementation of the plans, which have been devised by 48 local Transforming Care Partnerships (TCPs).

These TCPs are made up of people who use the services, their families, providers of services, clinical commissioning groups, local authorities and NHS England's specialised commissioning hubs.

Plans include new support services for people to stay well in their own homes, enhanced services from existing outreach teams, and efforts to bring those placed in inpatient care back to their own communities.

Initial awards will be allocated from a 30 million pound three-year NHS England revenue fund to help TCPs where there is a need to speed up the delivery of new services, while almost 6.5 million pounds will be provided to 23 TCPs on a match-funding basis to get new services up and running while older models of care are still in place.

Jane Cummings, chief nursing officer for England and chair of the Transforming Care Delivery Board, said: "We and our national partners are backing their plans, including with this significant additional investment over the coming years, and I look forward to seeing the improvements in people’s lives and health we can deliver together."
