On today, World Mental Health Day, the Care Quality Commission have written an open letter to ask for improving care for those with a learning disability, and/or autism or mental health problem.
In the letter they state
''Protecting people’s basic human rights is at the heart of good care. Everyone involved in the care of people in these services has a duty to act where there is a risk that a person’s human rights are being breached. We expect this of all our staff and of providers and all their staff.
We ask you to make sure that your services and staff are fully aware of what human rights are, and whether there is anyone in your care whose human rights are at risk of being breached.'
We fully support this and believe in every word of it! The care of our customers is paramount to be treated with respect and dignity at all times, as per their human rights.
