The total overall number of people in inpatient units has fallen 14% since March 2015.

In March 2017 we published a revised Care and Treatment Review (CTR) policy and made a number of changes to improve the effectiveness of CTRs.

164 inpatient beds closed in 2016/17, ahead of plan. The last stand-alone National Health Service hospital for people with a learning disability was absorbed into a mental health trust last year. New community services are opening, offering intensive support in people’s own homes rather than in hospital.
