Transforming Care Partnership vision and plan 2021 - 2024
The Humber Transforming Care Partnership works across Hull, East Riding of Yorkshire, North Lincolnshire and North East Lincolnshire. The partnership includes of a number of health and social care organisations across the Humber area working together to improve health and care of people with autism or a learning disability.
Local services can provide better and more joined-up care for patients when different organisations work together in this way. This also ensures that the Transforming Care Partnership has a good overview of the health and social care system across the Humber area.
There are three overarching objectives for the Transforming Care programme:
1. To improve the quality of care for people with a learning disability and people with autism.
2. To improve the quality of life for people with a learning disability and people with autism.
3. To reduce inappropriate hospital admissions and length of stay through enhancement of community provisions.
Recently the Transforming Care Partnership has developed a three-year delivery plan which will focus on five key areas that will have an impact on the quality of health and social care services for people with a learning disability and people with autism.

Hospitals are not homes
The National Forum of People with Learning Disabilities and the National Valuing Families Forum have been working together on a new booklet called ‘Hospitals are not homes’. The booklet is to help people work together on the Transforming Care work and check on the work that is happening in their local area.
The Transforming Care work is about better care and support for people with learning disabilities and/or autism. The work started after the abuse of people at Winterbourne View.
We think it is really important that people with learning disabilities and people with autism and their families can be part of the work. The booklet should help people know:
- What should be happening
- Who to speak to
- What questions they can ask
