Learning disability services

We inspect learning disability services in Wales to check people are receiving good care.

How we inspect

We look at how services:

Learning disability inspections are usually unannounced. This allows us to see services in the way they usually operate. The service does not receive any advance warning of an unannounced inspection.

The inspections are conducted by at least one HIW inspector and an external reviewer (with relevant professional experience). Inspectors will speak with patients about their experiences of care.

The document below provides guidance about what we will look at during an inspection. If you would like a copy of our inspection workbook please contact quoting which inspection type of workbook you require.
