Winterbourne View report calls for ban on physical restraint


How or why is what happened at Winterbourne even discussed in the same breath as Physical Intervention or Restraint. What them animals did to the Service Users in Winterbourne was torture and assault at it's worse. Every single staff member there should have been sacked. There is a time and place for Restrictive Physical Intervention, that is practiced in a trained for and professional manner, to keep staff & service users safe. Winterbourne and its cronies are a disgrace.
