Sept 2015: BASW Response to NHS England consultation: Draft Service Model for people with learning disabilities/autism



The cross-system Transforming Care programme aims to improve care for people with learning disabilities and/ or autism who have a mental health condition or display behaviour that challenges.  As part of this work, NHS England, the Local Government Association and the Association of Directors of Adult Social Services have developed  a draft Service Model for commissioners across health and care, that describes what good services look like. The Model will ensure some national consistency in health, social care and housing services across England,  whilst giving commissioners the flexibility to design services that best meet the needs of their local population.

We are now seeking the views of key stakeholders before publishing the final Service Model this autumn (2015). Please complete the short survey below by 6pm on Friday 4 September.
