Winterbourne View joint improvement programme: Stocktake of progress report

The stocktake of progress questionnaire, requested from chief executives of local authorities, clinical leads of local Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) and the chairs of Health and Wellbeing Boards (HWB), was sent out as an integral part of the Winterbourne View Joint Improvement Programme (WVJIP) in June 2013.

Its purpose was to enable local areas to assess their progress against commitments in the Winterbourne View Concordat and to allow for good practice and progress from local areas to be shared nationally.

It was further intended to assist in local discussions with key partners, including people who use services, family carers and advocacy organisations, as well as providers. It was based on the principle that the changes required as a response to Winterbourne View could only be successfully delivered through local partnerships.

The aim of the stocktake was also to help local areas identify what development support they might require from the WVJIP. The stocktake covered 11 key areas of enquiry:

• Models of partnership

• Understanding the money

• Case management for individuals

• Current review programme

• Safeguarding

• Commissioning arrangements

• Developing local teams and services

• Prevention and crisis response capacity

• Understanding the population who may need/receive services

• Children and adults transition planning

• Current and future market requirements and capacity
