A Review of the Results of the 2011/12 Focused CQC Inspection of Services for People with Learning Disabilities

Published: 25/06/12

This report reviews the results of the CQC review of assessment and treatment units and similar services.

It indicates:

  1. Only one in seven of the current residents of these units were being supported in settings that were fully compliant with key regulations;
  2. An unacceptable number of patients with learning disabilities were resident in assessment and treatment units or very long periods of time;
  3. 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.

Please find on the right a copy of the press release and the report.
