A coroner has written to the health secretary expressing concerns about the shortage of suitable supported accommodation for vulnerable people with Asperger syndrome following the death of a man in a home that had not even been inspected by the care regulator.
A spokesperson for the Department of Health and Social Care said advances had been made in the treatment of people with autism. They said: â€œBut we must speed up progress even further. We are working alongside people affected, to make sure they have access to healthcare with adjustments made for their conditions. The NHSâ€™s five-year plan for mental health will transform mental health care and improve the processes to get people with autism out of hospital and back into the community.â€
