The issues span several sectors and often seem too large to be able to solve.

On 13 August we held an event to look at what a #BetterSystem would look like for people with a learning disability and or autism and last Wednesday we had the first Expert Advisory Group (EAG) for the next phase of the review. The event included people who use services and their families, providers, commissioners, charities, NHS England and the Department for Health and Social Care. We’re still gathering views about what a #BetterSystem would look like so if you haven’t contributed yet, please do so before 1 October here. We really want to hear from you.

We remain committed to changing what we have the power to change and encouraging others to step forward and do the same.

However, when the final report and recommendations come out in March 2020, we need every single person who has a stake in this work, to step forward and be clear about what they are going to do to drive forward these recommendations. This is my early plea to ask you to think about how you can put pressure on the part of the system you are responsible for.

If you want to speak to someone about the review, please email RSSthematic@cqc.org.uk. The team will get back to you as soon as possible.
