On 3 December 2018 the Care Quality Commission announced they are  to review the use of restraint, prolonged seclusion and segregation for people with mental health problems, a learning disability and/or autism. The review has been commissioned by the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, Matt Hancock. The CQC will take forward this work and will report on its interim findings in May 2019, with a full report by March 2020.

Speaking on the announcement of the review Dr Paul Lelliott, Deputy Chief Inspector of Hospitals (lead for mental health) at the CQC said  “It is vital that services minimise the use of all forms of restrictive practice and that providers and commissioners work together to find alternative, and less restrictive, care arrangements for people who are currently subject to seclusion or segregation. Failure to do this has the potential to amount to inhuman and degrading treatment of some of the most vulnerable people in our society.”

“Too often our hardworking NHS staff are subjected to violence & aggression at work. It’s unacceptable. Our first ever NHS Violence Reduction Strategy will tackle this head-on" Matt Hancock, Secretary of State for Health, 31st October 2018

“Unbelievably around one in seven staff members say that they have experienced violence at the hands of a patient or relative in the last 12 months” Matt Hancock, Secretary of State for Health, 31st October 2018

“We would like providers to think about how they can improve their restrictive intervention reduction programmes to improve the quality of care for people using services.” A focus on restrictive intervention reduction programmes, Care Quality Commission 2018

“Some services use overly restrictive practices because they lack understanding of the legislation.” State of Health and Social Care CQC October 2018

“We have highlighted ongoing concerns about the use of physical restraint, and in particular the wide variation in the number of incidents of use of physical restraint reported by providers” State of Health and Social Care CQC October 2018

This conference will focus on reducing restrictive interventions in line with national guidance and ensuring adherence to the 2018 National NICE Quality Standard on Violence and Aggression.
