The Confidential Inquiry starts in Avon and Gloucestershire in June 2010

The national Confidential Inquiry is funded by the Department of Health. The CI team will be investigating the deaths of all people with learning disabilities in Bristol, North Somerset, Bath and NE Somerset, South Gloucestershire and Gloucestershire areas from 1 June 2010.

This is not a 'naming and shaming' process. the role of the CI is to identify good practice and see what lessons can be learned about the care of people with learning disabilities.

The CI has NHS research ethics approval, and Strategic Health Authority support. It complies with Caldicott Guardian information sharing agreements.
