star this property question text To ask the Secretary of State for Health, whether any audits have been carried out since April 2012 which consider how many patients may have been detained under the Mental Health Act 1983 because a doctor had been influenced by the fact that doing so might make the provision of a bed for their patient more likely; and what were the findings of those audits. more like this

In their annual report for 2012-13 <em>Monitoring the Mental Health Act in 2012/13</em>, published in January 2014, the CQC noted concerns raised by the House of Commons Health Committee over whether the Act’s powers of detention were being used improperly to access services. They said they found no direct evidence of unlawful practice.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>On 22 August 2014, the CQC published a series of reports relating to its inspection in May 2014 of services provided by Camden and Islington NHS Foundation Trust. The CQC found that that bed occupancy at the Trust averaged 96.4% between October and December last year, compared to the average of 85.9% across England. CQC inspectors were told that the pressures on beds meant that most new admissions to inpatient beds were people detained under the Act.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The CQC’s annual report on the Act for 2013-14 is expected to be published early in 2015.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>
