  • For people in hospital – must receive high-quality, person-centred, specialised care in small units
  • Renew attempts to reduce restrictive practice by all parties – only for absolute emergencies
  • Increase oversight and accountability for people with LD or autism(who may have a mental health problem). A single point of accountability.
