Department of Health publishes interim report to drive up standards and prevent abuse

Care Services Minister Paul Burstow has announced a series of national actions aimed at tackling the worst aspects of the care of people with learning disabilities or autism and challenging behaviour, which can lead to inexcusable abuse.

The report sets out how people with learning disabilities can receive the right care, and details how the experience of families and carers will be used to drive up standards and prevent abuse.
