Data on the number of BME patients being treated in locked rehabilitation wards in England is not collected centrally, though we would expect trusts to pay close attention to such data.

The Government welcomes the findings of the Care Quality Commission’s (CQC’s) report and shares its concerns about inappropriate use of locked rehabilitation wards. The department will consider the implications in discussion with NHS England, NHS Improvement and the CQC.
