Update on CQC's Out of Sight report
Yesterday, Debbie Ivanova and Jemima Burnage from the Care Quality Commission (CQC) published a blog giving an update on the work done over the last year since the CQC's Out of Sight report was released. Debbie is a deputy chief inspector - people with learning disabilities and autism, and Jemima is deputy chief inspector and mental health lead.
The report highlights the high levels of restrictive practice used in some mental health hospitals and the inappropriate use of long term segregation.

A fuller update is planned for spring 2022.
