Care and Treatment Reviews
People First runs a hub of Expert Advisers with lived experience of needing and receiving care. Our experts by experience attend Care and Treatment Reviews (CTRs) as independent advisors.
Care and Treatment Reviews are part of Transforming Care. This is an important project which helps people and children get the care they need in the community instead of in hospital. If people do need to go into hospital, it makes sure they leave as soon as they are well enough. They are part of NHS England’s goal to make people’s care better and improve life chances.
Our Expert Advisers make sure that people with a learning disability and/ or autism, who may also have a mental health condition, or present with challenging behaviour, are safe. We want to make sure people are getting good care and treatment and have a plan in place for how they can be supported to live good lives in the community.
Our advisers work across Cumbria and the North East and are mainly individuals with a learning disability, but they can also include family members or professionals with lots of experience of supporting people with a learning disability.
