CQC: Creating a better system of care for people at risk of seclusion
In November 2018 the Secretary of State commissioned the Care Quality Commission (CQC) to do a thematic review of segregation, seclusion and restraint. One of the key recommendations of the interim report was to create an expert group to think about how a better system of care for those at risk of seclusion can happen.
Proposals for a better system have now been produced following two joint events with Department of Health and Social Care, BILD RRN (British Institute for Learning Disabilities Restraint Reduction Network), and NHS England. CQC would like views on the proposals them before they are presented to the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care in early 2020.
