4 Winterbourne View Hospital
Opened in December 2006 Registered for assessment and treatment and rehabilitation for people with learning disabilities Most patients placed there under the Mental Health Act by commissioners from across England Closed in 2011 after abuse of patients exposed Several reports into events at Winterbourne View NHS Report looked at how people were placed there Serious Case Review gave details of what happened

5 Transforming care Department of Health Review from May 2011 to December 2012 Looked at how people with behaviour that challenges are supported across England Informed by: Other reports and evidence, including CQC inspections of services for people with learning disabilities Involvement and engagement with people with learning disabilities or autism, family carers, providers, commissioners and staff Final report published in December 2012

6 Transforming care - Issues identified
Around half of patients were far from home Very long stays. In some cases over 3 years Patients frequently subject to restraint Families not allowed to visit patients on wards or in bedrooms Closed culture made abuse hard to spot Inadequate access to advocacy for patients Complaints not handled properly

7 Concordat: Programme of Action
Signed by more than 50 organisations Over 60 actions focused on: Improving the quality of care and outcomes Planning around needs of patients from childhood Ensuring provision of local, personalised services Avoiding unnecessary inpatient assessment and treatment Moving people from hospital back home or to community support quickly Clear line of sight and responsibility from commissioners to each individual in inpatient settings

8 Concordat: Programme of Action
Key commitments Commissioners to identify people with a learning disability or autism and / or behaviour that challenges, who may also have a mental health condition To review identified people’s care and if appropriate move individuals to community settings Local joint plans in every area based on models of good care for people of all ages Joint Improvement Programme led by NHS England and Local Government Association to work with local areas Oversight 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 stay The audit will be repeated one year on to enable the Learning Disability Programme Board to assess what is happening Learning Disability Census identified as way of delivering this action Based on Count Me In census methodology, but questions changed to focus on issues identified in Transforming care Data will be: Published to show what is happening nationally Shared 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 healthcare Who have either Learning disabilities or Autistic Spectrum Disorder (including Asperger’s Syndrome) Any age Any 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 beds People in beds for physical health care People 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 2013/14 Guaranteeing no community is left behind or disadvantaged Better outcomes from mental health services NHS 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 CQC 150 locations were inspected across NHS, independent healthcare and adult social care settings We reviewed whether people experienced safe and appropriate care, treatment and support and whether they are protected from abuse Inspections were carried out by CQC inspectors, professional advisors and ‘experts by experience’ both people who have used services and family carers

15 Key overall findings Overall just under half (48%) of locations did not meet the required standards Just 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 Census Designed to look at ethnic inequalities in treatment for mental and behavioural conditions Ran annually from 2005 to 2010 – Learning disability only covered from 2006 Covered all mental and behavioural in-patient hospitals – NHS and independent Following Winterbourne View, a key source of information about the scale of inpatient care for people with learning disabilities Census 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 Census The 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 beds The 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 2007 Increasing proportion in mental illness beds since 2009 NHS 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 steady Increase in number in Rehabilitation beds Decrease 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 falling Since 2007, small increase in proportion staying less than 12 months

21 Substantial proportion with apparently unknown commissioner
Type of commissioner

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 LD Map shows in-patients in A&T beds for people with learning disability per 1000 people known to GPs in the areas in which they live Note this map uses a narrower set of data – LD beds only, and only A&T beds, also omits people whose commissioner is unknown London

38 Content and rationale Patient registration information
As at 30 September Provides national snapshot of service receipt Definitive (actual) rather than estimated Identifies how close to home people are receiving services Why they are receiving this type of service

39 Information on admission
Determines formal / informal nature of accommodation treatment and if current Patterns of referral – which agencies are referring to specialist services Are 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 harm Accidents Physical assault Restraint Seclusion What 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 details Is 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?
