Transforming Care: achieving positive outcomes

In October 2015, a national plan, Building the Right Support, was published to transform health and care services. It identified that too many autistic people and those with learning disabilities are still getting stuck in institutional care, such as long-stay hospitals. The four year programme aimed to enable more people to live in their own communities, closer to home and to access the right support to do so.

The success of NHS England’s Transforming Care programme is vital to ensure that everyone with a learning disability or autism are supported to have the same opportunities as anyone else to live their lives with whom and where they choose.

This includes avoiding unnecessary or prolonged hospital admissions. Yet, just five months away from the scheduled conclusion, progress remains frustratingly slow across the country.

Too many people remain in hospital and, as both Sky News and BBC File on Four have recently reported, the impact on individuals and their families is devastating.

At Voyage Care, we are working successfully with a number of Transforming Care Partnerships to ensure people are enabled to safely return home from hospital. Together, we have developed preventative solutions for people at risk of hospital admission. Our personalised support and bespoke housing solutions are always based on the needs and aspirations of each individual. Support focuses on:

  • early intervention and prevention
  • effective discharge and transition planning
  • active support and positive behaviour support
  • proactive crisis / contingency management plans

Jack, Gregg and Kai receive support from Voyage Care at Ruddington View and our other specialist residential and supported living locations. Their positive outcomes in these settings have included becoming more independent and starting to live the life they want in their communities.

We are committed to further develop these partnerships to drive this initiative forward. We believe that with the right support every person can live a valued life and be treated equally with dignity and respect.
