Updated policy and guidance setting out the expectations for implementation of Care (Education) and Treatment Reviews (CTRs) across England. Care and Treatment Reviews (CTRs) were developed to improve the care of people with learning disabilities, autism or both in England with the aim of reducing admissions and unnecessarily lengthy stays in hospitals and reducing health inequalities. This revised policy and guidance builds on learning following the introduction of the first Care and Treatment Reviews (CTR) policy in October 2015 and in working partnership with people with learning disabilities and their families. The document includes information on the review process, the Key Lines of Enquiry responsibilities, and pathways to CTRs. It also includes additional guidance in relation to the successful implementation of CTRs for children and young people. Although CTRS are being driven by the NHS, the involvement of local authorities and education services in the CTR process and its outcomes are necessary for improving care and treatment for people with learning disabilities and their families.
