11 What happens after a CTO ends?

Once the CTO ends, you no longer have to comply with the conditions which were set out in it ( see box 2). However, you can still continue to receive any care or treatment that you need, on a voluntary basis. The doctor in charge of your care (your RMO) should ensure that you have a care plan setting out what further care and treatment is intended after the CTO ends. This care plan should be drawn up in consultation with you and other people involved in your care.
