Winterbourne View is a 24-bed purpose designed Assessment and Treatment Unit providing healthcare and support for adults with learning disabilities, complex needs and challenging behaviour. It is operated by  Castlebeck Care (Teesdale) Ltd. This review was carried out following the BBC television programme Panorama which showed the serious abuse of patients at Winterbourne View over several months. The review found that Winterbourne View was not meeting 10 essential standards. Concerns resulted in the Care Quality Commission taking enforcement action to remove Winterbourne View from the registration of Castlebeck Care (Teesdale) Ltd.

This report relates to the investigation into the care and treatment of Ms L. Several recommendations are made both for the services responsible for Ms L and for other services who may be able to learn from this individual case. This MWC investigation was instigated following reports of a number of incidents involving Ms L, a young woman with a severe learning disability and severe challenging behaviour, in an independent assessment and treatment resource for people with a learning disability (Unit A). The final incident, where Ms L was apparently bitten by a fellow resident overnight, resulted in a Vulnerable Adults Case Conference being called. Ms L had already been assessed as ready to move on and a place identified for her to go to. This move was therefore brought forward by about 2 weeks.

The Commission undertook a themed visit to all learning disability in-patient units during the 2007-08 visiting programme. The Commission visited 39 facilities across Scotland from 25 October to 7 November 2007. Prior to the visits, health boards were asked to provide some information about the wards in their areas. Staff were asked a series of questions about the people living in the ward on the day of the visit and about how care and treatment was provided. Commission staff met with individual patients and some relatives and carers. The Commission was particularly interested in seeing how assessment of individual need was taking place and the ways identified needs were being met. Commission staff also looked for evidence within files that would indicate how individual people and carers were being involved in decisions about current and future care. Key recommendations are outlined.
