Deaths of people with learning disabilities or mental health problems not properly investigated says CQC

The CQC’s review of the way NHS trusts review and investigate deaths has found that opportunities to learn from patient deaths are being missed – and too many families are not being included or listened to when an investigation takes place.

The review found that the deaths of people with a learning disability or a mental illness do not consistently receive the attention they need.
