Background – South West London Transforming Care Partnership Plan

South West London’s Transforming Care Partnership’s (TCP) plans are focused on making sure that it can provide support to people with a learning disability and/or autism in the community, to do this it will improve services for people in times of crisis and provide training in positive behavioural support.

It will also focus on children and young people so that education, health and care plans meet a young person’s immediate need but also prepare them for the move into adulthood.

South West London TCP plan aims to:

  • Help people have less times of crisis by stepping in earlier and developing prevention techniques.
  • See less people going back into hospital after a crisis by looking after them in the community after they have been discharged.
  • Make sure that people across south west London are offered the same choices on personal budgets and personal health budgets.
  • Make sure more people with a learning disability and/or autism are supported to live in the community.
  • Provide support for families and carers, including more respite care and alternative short-term accommodation for patients
  • Reduce how many people are staying in hospital by discharging them, if appropriate, into the community where the right set of services are in place for them.
