We are committed to transforming care and improving services for children and adults with a learning disability and/or autism who display behaviour that challenges, or those with a mental health condition. Our aim is to ensure that care is always safe and high quality, and that service users, their families and carers have a good experience of services.
We have set up a transforming care partnership in north central London to develop our plans together. North central London includes the boroughs of Barnet, Islington, Enfield, Camden and Haringey. Our partnership includes all the clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) and local authorities in these five boroughs. We have set up a Transforming Care Partnership Board and Implementation Group (click here to see the governance structure). To help us shape our plans, we will be inviting people and their carers to join these groups.
The aim of the North Central London Transforming Care Partnership is to develop and implement a plan to achieve the vision and objectives set out in the Department of Health’s guidance: Building the Right Support. This national guidance is supported by a new Service Model across health and care that defines what good services should look like.

Our three year plan sets out how we will address the gaps and achieve our aspirations for transforming care, jointly across north central London. We will be looking at:
By March 2019 we aim to reduce our use of hospital beds to care for people with learning disabilities and/or autism by 50%: from 41 beds to 21 beds in line with the ambitions set out in Building the Right Support.
We are committed to involving users and carers. Over the next few months we will be speaking to people and their families and carers to help us co-design and shape our plans and services.
