HOW OUR CAM­PAIGN IS PIL­ING PRES­SURE ON MIN­IS­TER TO ACT

The Mail on Sunday - - News -

IN­QUIRY 1

Health Sec­re­tary Matt Han­cock said he was ‘deeply shocked’ by our rev­e­la­tions and or­dered the Care Qual­ity Com­mis­sion to re­view over-zeal­ous use of re­straint, seclu­sion and seg­re­ga­tion on peo­ple with autism and learn­ing dis­abil­i­ties. Fi­nal re­port not due un­til 2020.

IN­QUIRY 2

Har­riet Har­man, chair of the Joint Com­mit­tee on Hu­man Rights, was ‘dis­turbed’ over cases of ‘ap­par­ent poor treat­ment’. Ev­i­dence from par­ents left MPs wip­ing their eyes. Last week they also heard from NHS and CQC of­fi­cials.

IN­QUIRY 3

Chil­dren’s Com­mis­sioner Anne Long­field has been meet­ing dis­traught par­ents of sec­tioned teenagers to pre­pare a re­port. ‘I place a big em­pha­sis on shin­ing a light on chil­dren hid­den from view and none are more so than those in as­sess­ment and treat­ment units,’ she said.

IN­QUIRY 4

The Health and So­cial Care Select Com­mit­tee is pre­par­ing to launch an in­quiry in the wake of this news­pa­per’s Locked Up For Autism cam­paign. It is likely to hear from fam­i­lies and in­ter­ro­gate se­nior health of­fi­cials and lo­cal au­thor­i­ties.
