Please note that this event has passed.


This MRC webinar, chaired by Dr Martin Stevens (HSCWRU), was presented by Glynis Murphy, Professor of Clinical Psychology & Disability at the Tizard Centre, University of Kent. 

This webinar considered the events at Whorlton Hall and analysed the inspections that CQC had undertaken over the previous five years. Reasons why they missed the abuse going on were discussed. Ways in which they could improve their inspection process were considered. Glynis is a clinical and forensic psychologist and has worked in several community learning disabilities teams and in hospital settings. Her research interests include learning disabilities, autism,​ challenging behaviour, abuse, offending, mental capacity and the law. She chaired the NICE Guideline Development Group on learning disabilities and challenging behaviour.
