Care Education and Treatment Reviews (CETR)

Care, Education and Treatment Reviews (CETR) are focussed on children and young people whom either have been or may be about to be admitted to a specialist mental health and/or learning disability hospital either in the NHS or in the independent sector. 

The CETR bring together those responsible for commissioning and providing services (this will include nurses, social workers, education, commissioners and other health, education and social care professionals, alongside strategic commissioners where appropriate) with independent clinical opinion and the lived experience of children and young people and families from diverse communities with learning disabilities, autism or both. 

The CETR is driven by the NHS but the involvement of local authorities and education services in the process and its outcomes is integral to improving care, education and treatment for children and young people with learning disabilities, autism or both and as well as their families. 

In Hartlepool these reviews are led by the North of England Commissioning Support Unit (NECS) and supported by a multi-disciplinary team of representatives from Tees Valley CCG, Tees, Esk & Wear Valleys NHS Foundation Trust and Hartlepool Borough Council.
