/, Learning Disability, Mental Health, Older People, PSI/Care Quality Commission State of Care Report 2018/19

State of Care is the Care Quality Commission’s (CQC)  annual assessment of health care and social care in England.

The report looks at the trends, shares examples of good and outstanding care, and highlights where care needs to improve.

The report for 2018/19 which was released on 15 October found that emergency care standards have worsened over the last year, with A&E departments the most likely part of a hospital to be ranked inadequate.

The CQC warned of a “perfect storm” across health and social care where people cannot access care, or where the care comes too late to meet their needs.

The CQC also warned of a “serious deterioration” in the quality of inpatient services for people with mental health problems, learning disabilities and autism.

Some 10% of inpatient services for people with learning disabilities and/or autism were rated as inadequate, compared to 1% the year before.

And 7% of child and adolescent mental health inpatient services were rated inadequate, up on 3% the year before.
