Considerable change has taken place in the provision of specialist health services to people with learning disabilities with the move away from institutions and an emphasis on care in the community.
There is diversity between services in different parts of the country, but no existing source of information by which NHS Trusts can benchmark their own services against the national norm.
This project was undertaken in order to ascertain the current provision of specialist health services in England and Wales.
A questionnaire was returned by 83.9% of 161 NHS Trusts, who quantified their service in terms of in-patient and community resources.
Results were analysed and presented where possible as cumulative frequencies, to facilitate benchmarking.
