In October 2018, the Community Teams for Learning Disability, the Intensive Support Team and the Specialist and Complex Learning Disability team started operating as a single team at two bases: one in Northampton at Newland House and the other in Kettering at the Carey Suite in St Mary's Hospital and changed their names to Northamptonshire Learning Disability Support Service.
Community Teams for Learning Disabilities (CTPLDs)
