People with learning disabilities die younger than the general population, often for reasons that are avoidable with access to the right health care. In this webinar:
• Gyles Glover, Public Health England, will give an overview of the most recent data about the mortality of people with a learning disability
• Pauline Heslop, University of Bristol, will present the early findings of the Learning Disabilities Mortality Review (LeDeR) programme. LeDeR was established to support local areas to review the deaths of people with learning disabilities, identify learning from those deaths, and take forward the learning into service improvement initiatives
• John Trevains, NHS England, will talk about national actions being taken to address these early findings.
This webinar is aimed at public health, local authority and NHS colleagues and other stakeholders with an interest in taking local action to reduce the health inequalities experienced by people with a learning disability. It will be followed by a question and answer session. Please feel free to forward this invitation to your stakeholders. To receive an invitation to join the webinar, email LDT@phe.gov.uk
