Department of Health, 2013
This report summarises the changes to improve the quality of care for vulnerable people - specifically, for people with learning disabilities or autism who also have mental health conditions or behavioural problems.
The report covers:
- an exemplar case study
- surveys and monitoring programmes designed to track patients and observe their care
- improvements to the commissioning of health and care services
- the regulation and inspection of services
- work needed to make sure no one finds themselves in inappropriate care settings
Jim Kennedy has also written a briefing that provides an initial commentary on both these reports. The briefing can be read here.
