Winterbourne View Hospital - Serious Case Review published

Published on

Few will forget the shock of the May 2011 Panorama programme which exposed abuse at Winterbourne View Hospital of people with autism and learning disabilities. At the same time that this programme was aired, evidence was being heard at the Mid Staffordshire Public Inquiry about the care given at an NHS Trust.

Few will forget the shock of the May 2011 Panorama programme which exposed abuse at Winterbourne View Hospital of people with autism and learning disabilities. At the same time that this programme was aired, evidence was being heard at the Mid Staffordshire Public Inquiry about the care given at an NHS Trust.

The long-awaited report into Mid Staffs is due in October but, in the meantime, this Serious Case Review (SCR) has now been published.

In our briefing note we look at the recommendations made and how this sets the scene for the Mid Staffs report. If the recommendations from both reports are tackled head-on, we would hope that the vulnerable and elderly will see an improvement in both NHS and privately provided care.
