Abstract

Neuroleptics are prescribed for 23% of individuals with learning disabilities resident in Leicestershire, England. The rate of neuroleptic prescription is significantly higher in individuals resident in N.H.S.facilities (44%) than in non-N.H.S. managed community facilities (13%). Significantly higher doses of neuroleptics are prescribed to individuals resident in N.H.S. facilities. However, ratings for the level ofbehavioural disturbance were significantly higher in N.H.S. facilities. The decision to prescribe neuroleptics was associated with disturbed behaviour, and higher doses of neuroleptic medication prescribed were associated with more disturbed behaviour.
