Learning Disabilities Mortality Review Programme – LeDeR
The Confidential Inquiry into Premature Deaths of people with Learning Disabilities evidenced that people with learning disabilities die younger than other people in the population and emphasised the need for Annual Health Checks. More information at: www.bristol.ac.uk/cipold
A number of publications from Public Health England provide information about health inequalities and how to overcome these. Evidence to support the requirement for Annual Health Checks and information about reasonable adjustments are also available on the disabled people section of the gov.uk website.
For information about Safeguarding Adults, please visit the North Lincolnshire Safeguarding Adults Board website, where details of how to make an adult safeguarding referral can also be found.
