NHS England has published an independent report into the future care of people with learning disabilities.

Sir Stephen Bubb, chief executive of charity leaders body ACEVO, was asked by NHS England to work with stakeholders and make recommendations for the development of a national commissioning framework to address the serious shortcomings in the provision of support for people with learning disabilities.

Sir Stephen’s report makes a series of recommendations for the NHS, local government, regulators and the government, that include a robust NHS commissioning framework to support people with learning disabilities and autism move out of hospitals and into the community.
