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.
