Transforming Care Partnership Board (TCPB)

Cornwall Council, the Council of the Isles of Scilly and NHS Kernow Clinical Commissioning Group have formed a Transforming Care Partnership Board.

The Transforming Care Partnership have produced a Transforming Care Plan

This plan is for children, young people and adults with a learning disability and/or autism who have challenging behaviour. The plan aims to ensure that:

  • services have training on understanding people’s needs and person centred planning
  • ensure people on the autistic spectrum have their needs met
  • children and young people across Cornwall and the IOS have access to the same good care and that transition from children’s to adults services is good
  • people have a choice of where they live and that their housing meets their needs
  • people will have access to person centred planning and personal budgets
  • people at risk of going into hospital are given support and less inpatient beds are used
