People often not at the centre of their own care, says CQC as it publishes reports from its review of services for people with learning disabilities
The Care Quality Commission (CQC) yesterday publishes a further 20 reports from a targeted programme of 150 unannounced inspections of hospitals and care homes that care for people with learning disabilities.
The programme is looking at whether people experience safe and appropriate care, treatment and support and whether they are protected from abuse. A national report into the findings of the programme will be published in the Spring.
An area of concern to emerge from an initial analysis of the first 40 reports is that many services are failing to provide patient-centred care – that is, care that is based on the individual needs of people using the services.
