CQC publishes 12 reports from its review of services for people with learning disabilities

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) has published a further 12 reports from a targeted programme of 150 unannounced inspections of hospitals and care homes that care for people with learning disabilities.

The programme is looking at whether people experience safe and appropriate care, treatment and support and whether they are protected from abuse. A national report into the findings of the programme will be published in the spring.

The 12 inspections covered locations that provided a range of services including assessment and treatment, rehabilitation and longer term care.
