Transforming Care Programme

Oxfordshire Clinical Commissioning Group,
Oxfordshire County Council and NHS England South are working with Real People, Real Voices, which is the emerging organisation to replace the Learning Disability Partnership Board to develop the strategic plans for the Transforming Care Programme in Oxfordshire.My Life My Choice and Oxfordshire Family Support Network are two of the organisations taking part, and a representative from Autism Oxford.

The Transforming Care Programme Board, which is chaired by an independent Chair, Ian Winter, is meeting monthly.

The focus is on how support can be provided provided to children, young people and adults to improve services for people with learning disabilities and/or autism, who display behaviour that challenges, including those with a mental health condition.

The aim is to provide care that meets their needs close to home and in their local communities.

A draft plan is being developed and will be be reviewed by a panel in early February.

There is also Learning Disability Planning work that is going on, linked to this, looking at how the health related learning disability services can best be delivered in Oxfordshire based on the Big Plan.

We would really welcome comments on this forum about what you feel are really important priorities- what are the things that must happen, what are the things that need to change?

What do mainstream services need to do remove health inequalities for people with learning disabilities?

The agendas and minutes from these meetings will be posted on the OxFSN website and on here and we also plan to hold some events over the coming year to work together.

Please make use of this forum to share your thoughts - we want to work to get this right for people with learning disabilities and their families.We look forward to hearing from you.
