A questionnaire was completed by 135 of the 161 (83.9%) National Health Service (NHS) trusts who provide specialist health services for people with learning disabilities in England and Wales. From these, cumulative frequencies were calculated to describe the current level of provision of NHS beds. Results vary in different parts of the country, but the majority of NHS trusts provide assessment and treatment admission beds, long-stay beds (including those NHS trusts who have completed their resettlement process) and respite care beds. A half of NHS trusts directly manage NHS day places. The high response to questionnaires indicates the current high level of interest in this issue.
