At the end of 2022, a staggering 2,030 people with a Learning Disability and/or Autism were inpatients in hospitals across the UK. Unfortunately, 21% of these people were inpatients across the Midlands, making this the highest in all NHS Commissioning Regions. A significant percentage of these people could not be discharged due to lack of suitable housing within the community.
