If you are interested in helping to transform the care for people with learning disabilities and/or autism who display behaviour that challenges then you are being asked to share your views.

A new programme is being designed by Nottinghamshire County Council concerning children, young people and adults with Learning Disabilities and/or Autism who display challenging behaviour.

Nottinghamshire is one of five areas nationally which has been selected by NHS England to lead the way in helping to change how it provides care.

This includes reducing the number of people that are admitted to hospital unnecessarily, improving access to interventions to prevent a health crisis and putting in place the right support for those who need help in a crisis.

The Nottinghamshire Transforming Care Programme aims to transform care and support for individuals with a learning disability and/or autism who display behaviour that challenges, including those with a mental health condition, so that their care is focused on keeping them healthy, well and supported in the community.

These proposed plans will support people to stay in their community near family and friends rather than living in hospitals for long periods of time.

The consultaiton runs untilMay 20, and to have your say visit www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/Nottinghamshire-Transforming-Care-Programme-2016.

A drop in session to talk about the proposed plans is taking place on Wednesday, April 6, from 5pm to 7pm at The Sherwood Centre, Hallam Way, Old Mill Lane Industrial Estate, Mansfield Woodhouse, Mansfield.
