Sexual safety on mental health wards

A CQC report calls for new national guidance to improve the sexual safety of people on mental health wards, following analysis of how mental health trusts in England report sexual incidents.

The report shares findings from a review of patient safety incidents, which found that more than a third of incidents could be categorised as sexual assault or harassment of patients or staff.
