Abstract

This article considers some of the issues raised by an evaluation of facilitated person-centred planning (PCP) for six people with severe and complex learning disabilities residing in a long-stay hospital. The hospital is earmarked for closure, and all six are to be resettled. Using a realistic approach, evaluators explored such questions as whether the views of people with severe learning disabilities had been accessed, what makes PCP person-centred and who should participate in a plan. These questions raised awareness of the effect of timescales and a selective training programme in relation to PCP, and the impact this has had on effective person-centred planning.
