Children and young people’s mental health
Bolton’s 2020/21 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 social care, education, youth justice and the voluntary sector working together with children, young people and their families to provide the best possible services in Bolton.
To support this local leadership and accountability, NHS England asked clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) to work with their partners to develop Local Transformation Plans (LTPs) for children and young people’s mental health. First published in 2015, the Children and Young People’s LTP is a five year strategic plan to deliver whole system change to children and young people’s emotional health and wellbeing support and service provision in Bolton.
We are now entering the final year of Bolton’s five year LTP and children and young people’s mental health and emotional wellbeing continues to be a significant local priority in Bolton. Access to support remains the biggest challenge for children’s mental health services as highlighted in the recent Children’s Commissioner's report that describes the current state of children’s mental health services across England
The LTP reflects the strategic vision of Bolton CCG, Bolton Council, Bolton NHS Foundation Trust (FT), Bolton community and voluntary services, Greater Manchester Mental Health NHS FT (GMMH) and North West Boroughs NHS FT. The plan describes how we have and will continue to engage with children, young people and families with lived experience of emotional health and wellbeing difficulties in addition to how we work 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 Greater Manchester.
Bolton’s 2020/21 LTP Refresh has been approved through Bolton CCG’s governance processes and is to be presented at Bolton’s Health and Wellbeing Board in due course*
