Learning Disabilities Mortality Review (LeDeR) Programme
Published on 27 July 2018 by Sarah Dunne
The Learning Disabilities Mortality Review (LeDeR) Programme is the first national programme of its kind aimed at making improvements to the lives of people with learning disabilities.
People with Learning Disabilities die, on average, 30 years younger than the general population and early deaths are linked to poor quality of care or difficulty in accessing the care they need.
Reviews are being carried out with a view to improve the standard and quality of care for people with learning disabilities. People with learning disabilities, their families and carers have been central to developing and delivering the programme.
The LeDeR programme in Suffolk will identify how health and social care systems can change and anyone can refer a death of a person with a disability by contacting the LeDeR team.
Please see the flyer below for more information and details about how to refer someone's death for review.
