When Winterbourne View Hospital was closed, the remaining patients were transferred to a variety of learning disability care provision. The range of provision included medium and low secure hospitals; NHS Assessment and Treatment facilities; independent hospitals that offer rehabilitation; and specialist residential homes that care for people with challenging behaviour.

As at 1 July 2014, of the 48 individuals who, at some point, were patients at Winterbourne View Hospital, 10 people are still in hospital; 20 people are living in a residential home; five people are living in supported living accommodation and 12 people have their own tenancy. One person passed away in 2013, who had moved into a residential home.
