A Review of the Results of the 2011/12 Focused CQC Inspection of Services for People with Learning Disabilities
This report reviews the results of the CQC review of assessment and treatment units and similar services.
- Only one in seven of the current residents of these units were being supported in settings that were fully compliant with key regulations;
- An unacceptable number of patients with learning disabilities were resident in assessment and treatment units or very long periods of time;
- For every comparison made, units operated by NHS Trusts were more likely to be compliant than services operated by independent (primarily for profit) healthcare providers.
