Winterbourne View nurses jailed


Winterborne View is interesting because it highlighted: - the complacency of NHS commissioners in relation to specialist provision for vulnerable with complex and challenging behaviour. - lack of supervision for registered nurses working in non NHS settings (Social care, independant sector, primary care etc.) - the dangers of not adequately recruiting on the basis of compassion in sectors which traditionally struggle to recruit. There seems in the posts a over reliance of what CQC should have done and a really lack of focus on what should be required when you commission a service i.e. expect and monitor the contract is met in respect to appropriate recruitment, staffing, complaints and adverse incidents - there was a disproprotionate amount of A&E attendances. Where were the commissioners of this service and how have they been held to account.
