Care Homes: Learning Disability

Volume 497: debated on Wednesday 14 October 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what the median quality rating for (a) local authority provision, (b) voluntary provision, (c) private provision and (d) NHS provision of residential care home placements for adults aged under 65 years with learning disabilities in each (i) region and (ii) local authority area was in each of the last five years. (290245)

The quality or “star” rating system for social care providers was introduced by the then regulator of social care, the Commission for Social Care Inspection (CSCI) in May 2008. For this reason, the information requested is not available for each of the last five years.

Information on average quality ratings of care homes for younger adults with provision for people with learning disabilities, as at 8 August 2008 and 28 July 2009, has been provided by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), which took over the responsibilities of CSCI on 1 April 2009. This information has been placed in the Library.
