4 Winterbourne View Hospital Opened in December 2006Registered for assessment and treatment and rehabilitation for people with learning disabilitiesMost patients placed there under the Mental Health Act by commissioners from across EnglandClosed in 2011 after abuse of patients exposedSeveral reports into events at Winterbourne ViewNHS Report looked at how people were placed thereSerious Case Review gave details of what happened
5 Transforming careDepartment of Health Review from May 2011 to December 2012Looked at how people with behaviour that challenges are supported across EnglandInformed by:Other reports and evidence, including CQC inspections of services for people with learning disabilitiesInvolvement and engagement with people with learning disabilities or autism, family carers, providers, commissioners and staffFinal report published in December 2012
6 Transforming care - Issues identified Around half of patients were far from homeVery long stays. In some cases over 3 yearsPatients frequently subject to restraintFamilies not allowed to visit patients on wards or in bedroomsClosed culture made abuse hard to spotInadequate access to advocacy for patientsComplaints not handled properly
7 Concordat: Programme of Action Signed by more than 50 organisationsOver 60 actions focused on:Improving the quality of care and outcomesPlanning around needs of patients from childhoodEnsuring provision of local, personalised servicesAvoiding unnecessary inpatient assessment and treatmentMoving people from hospital back home or to community support quicklyClear line of sight and responsibility from commissioners to each individual in inpatient settings
8 Concordat: Programme of Action Key commitmentsCommissioners to identify people with a learning disability or autism and / or behaviour that challenges, who may also have a mental health conditionTo review identified people’s care and if appropriate move individuals to community settingsLocal joint plans in every area based on models of good care for people of all agesJoint Improvement Programme led by NHS England and Local Government Association to work with local areasOversight of progress through the Learning Disability Programme Board
9 Learning Disability Census Concordat action to commission an audit of current (inpatient) services for people with challenging behaviour to take a snapshot of provision, numbers of out of area placements and lengths of stayThe audit will be repeated one year on to enable the Learning Disability Programme Board to assess what is happeningLearning Disability Census identified as way of delivering this actionBased on Count Me In census methodology, but questions changed to focus on issues identified in Transforming careData will be:Published to show what is happening nationallyShared with commissioners to support plans to review people’s care
10 Census coverage – who is included? People in inpatient beds for mental and / or behavioural healthcareWho have either Learning disabilities or Autistic Spectrum Disorder (including Asperger’s Syndrome)Any ageAny level of security (General / Low / Medium / High)Any status under the Mental Health Act (Informal or detained)Do not include:People in accommodation not registered with the CQC as hospital bedsPeople in beds for physical health carePeople who do not have either learning disabilities or autism
11 What do we want from the Census? How many people with a learning disability or autism are currently in in-patient mental and behavioural care beds?How many have personality disorders or mental illnesses requiring hospital in-patient treatment now?How many are known to local commissioners and being actively managed by learning disability specialists from their home area?How many are working towards a planned discharge?How satisfactory or unsatisfactory are current placements?How does this vary around the country?
12 National policy drivers Everyone counts: Planning for Patients 2013/14Guaranteeing no community is left behind or disadvantagedBetter outcomes from mental health servicesNHS Mandate“The NHS Commissioning Board’s (NHS England) objective is to ensure that vulnerable people, particularly those with learning disabilities and autism receive safe, appropriate, high quality care. The presumption should always be that services are local and that people remain in their communities; we expect to see a substantial reduction in reliance on inpatient care for these groups of people”

14 CQC Learning Disability Inspection Programme - Background An advisory group was established to provide experience and expertise to CQC150 locations were inspected across NHS, independent healthcare and adult social care settingsWe reviewed whether people experienced safe and appropriate care, treatment and support and whether they are protected from abuseInspections were carried out by CQC inspectors, professional advisors and ‘experts by experience’ both people who have used services and family carers
15 Key overall findingsOverall just under half (48%) of locations did not meet the required standardsJust over half assessment and treatment services were compliant with both outcomes (52%), but more people were in services that were non compliant (58%)Independent health care locations were twice as likely to be non compliant as NHS locations (68% and 33% respectively)

17 Count Me In CensusDesigned to look at ethnic inequalities in treatment for mental and behavioural conditionsRan annually from 2005 to 2010 – Learning disability only covered from 2006Covered all mental and behavioural in-patient hospitals – NHS and independentFollowing Winterbourne View, a key source of information about the scale of inpatient care for people with learning disabilitiesCensus asked about normal use of beds (for people with mental illness or learning disabilities, also about disabilities (including whether each person had a learning disability))
18 Count Me In CensusThe next four slides show what the Count Me In census has shown about inpatient care of people who were reported to have learning disabilities. Some were in learning disability beds, some in mental illness bedsThe census also identified 330 people with autism, but without learning disability in mental illness beds - they are not covered here
19 Trends in in-patients with LD - 1 Mental Illness vs Learning disability beds:Numbers steady since 2007Increasing proportion in mental illness beds since 2009NHS vs independent sector beds:Increasing proportion in independent sector beds
20 Trends in in-patients with LD - 2 Type of in-patient bed:Numbers in A&T beds fairly steadyIncrease in number in Rehabilitation bedsDecrease in numbers in Long Stay and ‘other’ beds(Bed type data lost for 2008)Stay length at time of census:Proportion staying over 5 years fallingSince 2007, small increase in proportion staying less than 12 months
21 Substantial proportion with apparently unknown commissioner Type ofcommissioner
22 Frequency of incidents The table shows the numbers (and percentage) of patients experiencing each of the types of adverse event shown at least twice and at least ten times in the three months up to the census date. Ten times in three months is on average roughly once per week.
23 Rate of use varies widely between areas In-patients per 1000 known to GPs with LDMap shows in-patients in A&T beds for people with learning disability per 1000 people known to GPs in the areas in which they liveNote this map uses a narrower set of data – LD beds only, and only A&T beds, also omits people whose commissioner is unknownLondon

39 Information on admission Determines formal / informal nature of accommodation treatment and if currentPatterns of referral – which agencies are referring to specialist servicesAre stays lengthy – residential accommodation or assessment and treatment?Which needs are not being met in communities close to home?
40 Experience of care Determination of the frequency of incidents: Self harmAccidentsPhysical assaultRestraintSeclusionWhat is the national picture for incidents and how do provider units compare with this?
41 Accommodation and location Type of environment – are outcomes associated to facilities?Where are services being provided and for how many patients?
42 Patient care detailsIs care planned, agreed and reviewed with access to support from services and families locally?Is medication a significant factor in the provision of treatment and care?Are safeguards in place?What is the cost of care?
