Care services for people with learning disabilities and challenging behaviour

NHS Evidence - health management - Fri, 27/03/2015 - 10:54

House of Commons Public Accounts Committee - 
This report finds that despite the agreed aim that people with learning disabilities should live and receive care in the community, there has been no closure programme for large mental health hospitals. It noted that the availability of places in mental health hospitals has reduced the pressure on local commissioners to revise their commissioning strategies to expand the capacity and capability of local community services. The report recommends that the Department of Health should mandate the timely collection of a consistent dataset on people with learning disabilities and challenging behaviour, to inform effective planning and management of their care. It also recommends that NHS England should use its commissioning framework to require local commissioners to comply fully with the Department of Health's stated aim to promote community based services rather than hospital admissions for people with learning disabilities.
