7 Days of Action.

Day 1 – Closed Doors

…we are going to start this week by asking you to stop and think for a moment. We are going to ask you to imagine what it must be like to be detained behind the closed doors of an Assessment and Treatment Unit…

This week’s 7daysofaction is about money, business and the inpatient healthcare economy. It’s about a kind of business that is becoming increasingly significant and increasingly powerful. It’s about a new kind of trade and new kind of commodity. We did think we’d start this week by looking at the work we’d done in analysing the finances of the inpatient healthcare economy and by giving you an overview of our report A Trade in People: the inpatient healthcare economy for people with learning disabilities and/or ASD. But the problem with starting a week about people with statistics and budgets, is that you forget about the person and their experiences. So we are going to start this week by asking you to stop and think for a moment. We are going to ask you to imagine what it must be like to be detained behind the closed doors of an Assessment and Treatment Unit.
