CQC publish report of 145 inspections
The Care Quality Commission (CQC) has published a report from a programme of 145 unannounced inspections.
Opening the report Dame Jo Williams, CQC Chair commented “We found many people have been in assessment and treatment services for disproportionate periods of time, with no clear plans for discharge arrangements in place and too many people were in services away from their families and homes. Overall, there remains much to be done to ensure that people with learning disabilities are not discriminated against and that expectations are raised about the type of services that can be commissioned and provided for people and their families.”
Almost half (48%) of the services inspected did not comply with the CQC standards, with moderate or major concerns. Only 24% of the services complied with the standards without any concerns, 28% complied with the standards but had minor concerns raised.
