NCAS 2015: Hopes for a transforming session

Posted by: , Posted on: - Categories: Autism strategy, Safeguarding

The Transforming Care Programme continues to implement the changes needed following the tragic events of Winterbourne View. This session will update delegates on progress over the last eight months, including what the Transformation Plan for the next five years will look like. Sarah McClinton, Director of Mental Health, Disability and Dementia at the Department of Health, looks ahead to what she hopes will be an engaging and positive session:

Join Sarah McClinton and the rest of the panel for 'Transforming Care - next steps', 16 October 9-10am, Solent Hall

“We hope the session will inspire colleagues to look at what difference they can make to the lives of people with learning disabilities and mental health problems who continue to live in in-patient beds.

"Hospitals are not homes and the session will provide an opportunity to hear about national policy from the Department of Health’s perspective and the national plan for transformation from from NHS and ADASS leaders .

“There will also be an opportunity to hear from David Pearson about the experience of being one of the fast track areas, which are leading the way in redesign and recommissioning services to create a shift to high quality community provision.”

    I really like what you're trying to achieve here. I have been suffering from depression for 20 years now & experienced a lot of turbulence as a result over the years. I don't say this to ellicit sympathy, but to tell you that, apart from the tablets, I'm actually a Health & Social Care worker in various guises for 29 years now & can fully appreciate what you're trying to achieve here. I wish you every sucess in what you are trying & would love to be more involved if possible please. Good luck. Neil Stillwell.
