This page askes the question 'What is Transforming Care?' It includes a summary of the history of Transforming Care, and details of how the CBF has been involved.
The NHS Long Term plan has extended the Transforming Care target of 35%- 50% reduction in inpatients with learning disabilities and/ or autism to 2023/24. The NHS Long Term plan committed to a 35% reduction by March 2020 but this target was missed. We will continue to monitor the data, and track progress towards these targets.
- The total number of children, young people and adults with a learning disability and/ or autism in inpatient services at the end of March 2022 was 2,005 including 195 under 18s.
- 200 had a delayed transfer of care, the key reasons identified were lack of social care and lack of suitable housing.
- Average length of stay in inpatient services remains 5.6 years.
- The total number of reported restrictive interventions in January 2022 was 3,570 including 540 on under 18s*
*NHS Digital include a note in the publication to explain ‘restrictive interventions data are lower than in previous months due to the reduced number of providers submitting restrictive interventions data’.
