Progress on moving mental health care from hospitals to communities

NHS England has published the latest quarterly data that tracks progress on moving people with learning disabilities and/or autism from in-patient to community settings.

The figures at 31 December 2014 show a reduction in the overall number of people in in-patient settings.

The data also shows that more people (1,561) now have a transfer date to a community setting and almost two thirds of these are within the next 12 months.
