Whilst attending the AIMS Learning Disability forum at RCPsych last year we had an opportunity to hear first hand from some of the leaders of  the STOMP initiative (Stopping the over medication of people with a learning disability, autism or both). People with a learning disability, autism or both are more likely to be given these medicines than other people.

The speakers were incredibly engaging and passionate about the topic and brought the articles in the health press to life. At the time STOMP was largely being rolled out in social care provision and an awareness builder in primary care. There was a real opportunity for inpatient services to become part of the movement and overhaul also.

Public Health England says that every day about 30,000 to 35,000 adults with a learning disability are taking psychotropic medicines, when they do not have the health conditions the medicines are for. Children and young people are also prescribed them.

We are submitting work to the central STOMP team in the lead up to the final versions being signed off and are proud to be one of only 3 independent providers working on this project alongside our NHS colleagues.

On the 25th April 2018 Victoria Hulström (Deputy Hospital Director, Lakeside) and Sue Hullin (Quality and Service Development Director) will be travelling to Newcastle for the STOMP Healthcare Pledge launch and signing all accomplish services up to the pledge for both health and social care as well as presenting about the work at Lakeside to date.
