CTS are members of various organisations that focus on keeping up to date with the social care sector and also developments within the NHS. We are currently members of the National Care Association, Care and Support West, the Challenging Behaviour Foundation and the Registered Care Providers Association.
We are members of BILD (the British Institute of Learning Disabilities) and deliver training in PBM that is BILD approved. This training is delivered by Positive Response Training ltd.
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.
Our LD Nurses are members of the Nursing and Midwifery Council and Royal College of Nursing, and our OT is a member of the British Association of Occupational Therapists.
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:
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.
