Journal article

Out of area, out of sight: review of out-of-area placement arrangements made by social services and health for people with learning disabilities from the West Midlands

Authors:
GOODMAN Nicholas, NIX Jane, RITCHE Fiona
Journal article citation:
Tizard Learning Disability Review, 11(1), February 2006, pp.35-43.
Publisher:
Emerald

In 2004/2005 local partnership boards requested West Midlands South and Birmingham & The Black Country Strategic Health Authorities (SHAs) to review and report back on the circumstances of adults with a learning disability placed out of area. This review investigates, through questionnaires, information on 623 people and more detailed qualitative information on 111 people prioritised for visits by the district commissioners of services. The review found an increase in the number of out-of-are placements. With lack of monitoring and reviewing of placements, many people have been left solely to the care of provider organisations. The review calls for specific action to be taken to reverse this trend of increasing out-of-area placements and to make cost-effective local solutions.
