Services for People with Learning Disabilities provides a broad review of available services for people with learning disabilities. It describes the present network of services and explains the NHS and Community Care Act (1990) in terminoloy accessible to health care professionals and others engaged in this area. It looks in detail at the concepts underpinning new legislation, including care-management and assessment, quality and inspection, and inter-agency planning, and it supplies up-to-date information on current topics such as advocacy and empowerment, and recreation and leisure. An invaluable resource for all practitioners in health and community care, Services for People with Learning Disabilities will also give professionals and carers a much greater understanding of the changes and improvements that are still needed.
