Professional Standards

There are a number of health and social care professionals in CTS, and we all have our own professional responsibility to ensure good and ethical practice. This is why we are all members of professional bodies. All of the health and social care professionals are registered with the Health and Care Professions Council.

All of our Clinical Psychologists are Associate Fellows of the British Psychological Society and members of the Faculty of Learning Disabilities, and the Faculty of Forensic and Clinical Psychology.

Signing up to Ensure Quality

CTS are committed to signing up to organisations and frameworks that promote best practice and help us to drive up quality in our services.

We have therefore signed up to the following charters, frameworks and commitments:

  • The challenging behaviour charter developed by the Challenging Behaviour National Strategy Group.
  • We have endorsed the Positive Behavioural Support Competence Framework produced by the PBS Coalition UK.
  • We are signed up to the STOMP pledge which aims to Stop the Over Medication of People with a Learning Disability, Autism or Both

In addition, our Clinical Team are members of the Avon and Wiltshire Positive Behaviour Support Network Steering Group, and the South West Reducing Restrictive Practice Advisory Group. Through these memberships and associations we are able to keep up to date about best practice and strive towards embedding good practice throughout the organisation.
