Prime Minister Says ‘Joint Plan of Action is Needed’ to Improve Learning Disability Services

The Prime Minister, David Cameron, has stated that he was “appalled at the horrific catalogue of abuses uncovered at Winterbourne View” in the recent Panorama Programme.

Replying to the 86 organisations that wrote to him with a proposed plan of action in response to the issues raised by that abuse, the Prime Minister gave assurances that action is underway to ensure that lessons are learnt. He stated that “A joint plan of action is needed both locally and nationally to drive improvements in services and determine how the lessons from Winterbourne View can influence future policy and practice”. He concluded by stating that the Government is “committed to taking all necessary action to minimise the chance of such terrible event recurring”.
