Assuring Transformation

Assuring Transformation is a data collection that has been developed in response to Transforming Care: A national response to Winterbourne View Hospital and Winterbourne View Review: Concordat: A Programme of Action. It monitors the progress of moving people with a learning disability, autism or both to community settings to ensure that the public reporting on progress to implement the NHS commitments in the Concordat is transparent and robust.
