A research project on the interface between mental health and learning disability services. The main objective of this research project, which was funded by the South West Regional NHS Research and Development Directorate, was to carry out an audit of ‘pressure points’ within services for people with learning disabilities and mental health needs in South West England. A retrospective two-year census of case files (n=348) was carried out, supplemented by in-depth interviews with key clinical staff (n=30), and semi-structured interviews with commissioners from Valuing People Partnership Boards (n =10) and Local Implementation Teams for the National Service Framework for Mental Health (n=9). The main outcome measures were descriptions of patterns of service use, along with the presence (or otherwise) of disputes and/or joint working, set in the context of the views of providers and commissioners.
