Sharing and learning at a Transforming Care Partnership event in Nottingham

by Kelly Thomson

In July, we attended a Transforming Care ‘Share and Learn’ event, held at the Albert Hall in Nottingham. The aim of the event was for local health and social care partners involved with the Transforming Care agenda to reflect on what has been working well and to shape what needs to be done in the future.

The event was an opportunity to share our experience and learning from the development of our local transforming care service, Ruddington View, which opened in February 2018.
Registered Manager of Ruddington View, Smita, was asked to present at event. Smita presented jointly with the Nottinghamshire Intensive Community Assessment and Treatment Team (ICATT) who have been a key partner in the development of Ruddington View.

Our presentation shared ‘Tina’s’ story. Tina was referred to Ruddington View as she was she was at risk of being admitted to hospital. Through working closely with Tina, her family and the local professionals involved, the team have enabled her to settle at the service which improved her health and mental well-being. Tina’s support team have developed trust and rapport with Tina who is now receiving transitional support, as she prepares to move back with her family.

It was great to be part of an event that involved various presentations and workshops. We found it useful meeting local partners and experts by experience who share our passion for enabling people to receive the right support, at the right time in the community.
