About the CTRs/CETRs
The responsibility for Care Treatment Reviews (CTRs) and Care Treatment (Education) Reviews (CETRs) will transfer from NHS England to the South West Provider Collaborative

They 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. CETRs reflect more accurately the significant role that education plays in children and young people’s lives.

CTRs/CETRs aim to:
  • Empower people and their families to be listened to about their own care and treatment
  • Check that people are safe and have good quality care. Also that their care and discharge plans are good quality and progressing well
  • Make sure people only go into hospital when their care or treatment cannot be safely provided in the community and it is the right place to be
  • Review the care, treatment and discharge plans of people who go into hospital in an emergency or crisis
  • Work with the person, their family and others to support people well in the community
  • Make sure local services are involved - social care, Special Educational Needs SEN team, school or college. So that all issues can be addressed and solutions found

This is a new post and will be involved and take part in the reviews and will be part of the feedback session at the end of the day and facilitating the process of discussion, challenging current practice and opinions where necessary and forming conclusions and recommendations for future care. They will also be responsible for the timely co-ordination and implementation of the CTR/CETR panels.
