This report sets out the progress made in England during the past year against the 17 recommendations set out in ‘Strengthening the Commitment: The report of the UK Modernising Learning Disability Nursing Review (2012)’. It shows how the recommendations have been turned into good practice to achieve better health and wellbeing for people with learning disabilities.

It fulfils the commitment we made in ‘Transforming Care: A national response to Winterbourne View Hospital’.
