Bolton’s 19/20 Local Transformation Plan (LTP) Refresh

The transformation of children and young people’s mental health is led locally.  This means local professionals from across the NHS, public health, children’s care, education and youth justice working together with children, young people and their families to design and provide the best possible services for their locality.

To support this local leadership and accountability, NHS England asked Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) to work with commissioners and providers to develop Local Transformation Plans for Children and Young People’s Mental Health (LTPs).

LTPs were first published in 2015, with 123 plans covering the whole of England. They set out how local services will invest resources to improve children and young people’s mental health across the “whole system”. These plans are ‘living documents’ and local areas are asked to refresh, and CCGs to republish them, on CCG websites every year.

Bolton’s LTP has now been in place for four years and is required to be refreshed in order to describe and reflect on local progress, confirming that funding has been spent in accordance with the original plan. The refresh provides a high-level overview of the future ambition of the locality to fully achieve whole system transformation in order to improve outcomes for children and young people with mental health problems.

The LTP reflects the strategic vision of Bolton Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), Bolton Council, Bolton NHS Foundation Trust (FT), Bolton Community and Voluntary Services, Bridgewater Community Healthcare NHS FT, Greater Manchester Mental Health NHS FT (GMMH) and North West Boroughs NHS FT. The plan has been developed with Children and Young People (CYP) with lived experience of emotional health and wellbeing difficulties in addition to other key stakeholders such as Bolton Healthwatch who are pinnacle to system-wide engagement across the Borough. Delivery of the outcomes is only possible with significant joint working between all these partners and at scale across GM.

Bolton’s 19.20 LTP Refresh has been approved through Bolton CCG’s governance processes and is to be presented at Bolton’s Strategic Commissioning Function / Integrated Care Partnership in April 2019 for final sign off.
