NHS Improvement -
This guide aims to help standardise staffing decisions for learning disability services in community and inpatient settings. It is designed to help commissioners and providers of NHS commissioned services, create, review and sustain safe and effective specialist health services for people with a learning disability, who have a wide range of needs and varying levels of disability. Our ambition is to make a difference to the quality and consistency with which safe and therapeutic services for people with learning disabilities are delivered. The closing date for comments on the draft guidance is 3 February 2017.
