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

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) has published ten reports from a targeted programme of 150 unannounced inspections of hospitals and care homes that care for people with learning disabilities. The first five reports were published in December.

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 ten inspections were of hospitals that provide assessment and treatment services.
