Transfer data for people with learning disabilities

NHS England has published the first set of quarterly data it promised to publish in the wake of Winterbourne View.

Transfer data for people with learning disabilities, autism or challenging behaviour measures the time between admission to hospital and a move to another treatment setting or return home.

Following the Winterbourne View enquiry, NHS England agreed to review all current hospital placements and support everyone inappropriately placed in hospital to move to community-based support as quickly as possible and no later than 1 June 2014. NHS commissioners were asked to collect the relevant data from January 2014.
