We Support STOMP (Stopping over medication of people with a learning disability, autism or both)

STOMP stands for stopping over medication of people with a learning disability, autism or both with psychotropic medicines. STOMP is about helping people to stay well and have a good quality of life.

People with a learning disability, autism or both are more likely to be given these medicines than other people.

Public Health England says that every day about 30,000 to 35,000 adults with a learning disability are taking psychotropic medicines, when they do not have the health conditions the medicines are for. Children and young people are also prescribed them.

We are proud to be one of only 3 independent healthcare providers working with NHS England on this fantastic initiative.

We are committed to the STOMP pledge:
