In response to the serious abuse and poor standards of care at Winterbourne View, the Care Quality Commission under took a series of unannounced inspections of 150 services for people with learning disability, mental health needs and challenging behaviour. Two organisations were also commissioned to carry out an independent evaluation of the inspections. This evaluation report looks at the experience of those involved in the inspection process, including people who used services and their family carers (Experts by Experience); Care Quality Commission inspectors and the care providers. Overall all three groups found being involved in the inspection process was a positive experience and believed their views has been taken seriously. The evaluation also highlights how the Care Quality Commission can improve their involvement of these three groups in the future.
