Care Treatment Reviews (CTRs)
The CTR focuses on four areas: is the person safe; are they getting good care; do they have a care plan and can their care and treatment be provided in the community. They are carried out for:
- People receiving long-term care in a specialist learning disability or mental health hospital – to see if they can move to a community setting
- People who are at risk of being admitted to a specialist hospital – to see if there are any other options to prevent an admission
- People who do need specialist hospital care – to ensure they have a care plan with clear outcomes from the start, that focuses on transferring them back to a community setting, to prevent unnecessarily lengthy hospital stays
The CTR team involves the commissioner and two expert advisors – an individual or family member with experience of learning disability services (an ‘expert by experience’) and an independent clinician – to ensure that care plans meet individuals’ needs. Those who are providing their current care are also involved in the review. Following the CTR, the review team makes recommendations, with follow-up checks to ensure the activity is being delivered
