Programme to move people out of long-stay hospitals

Care and support minister Norman Lamb made a commitment to move people with a learning disability or autism out of long-stay hospitals unless they really need to be there.

Publishing the government’s final report with recommendations aiming to prevent a repeat of the abuse uncovered at the Winterbourne View private hospital, he pledged to hold boards of directors to account for poor care and failing standards.
