The report details the findings of a joint investigation into services for people with learning disabilities at Cornwall Partnership NHS Trust. The services investigated were the Budock Hospital near Falmouth, which is a treatment centre for 18 inpatients.  The investigation also looked at two other treatment centres, 4 children’s units and 46 houses occupied by groups of up to four people with learning disabilities. The report describes many years of abusive practices at the trust and the failure of senior trust executives to tackle this. Examples of abuse included physical abuse and misuse of people’s money. Investigators found evidence of institutional abuse including some staff hitting, pushing, and dragging people. Some staff were also reported to have withheld food and given people cold showers. The investigation team also found an over-reliance on medication to control behaviour, as well as illegal and prolonged use of restraint.
