CQC Interim report: Review of restraint, prolonged seclusion and segregation

The interim report shares their key findings from the visits they have undertaken so far, and focuses exclusively on the experience of those people cared for in segregation on a mental health ward for children and young people or on a ward for people with a learning disability and/or autism. In the report they make a number of recommendations for the health and care system, as well as for CQC itself.

The next phase of the review will look at the use of restrictive practices in a wider group of settings, including low secure and rehabilitation mental health wards and adult social care services. They will make further recommendations to the Department of Health and Social Care and the wider system in their full report in March 2020.
