New members wanted for the NHS England learning disability and autism advisory group

The NHS England learning disability and autism advisory group are looking for autistic people, people with a learning disability and family carers to join the group. They want people who can share their experiences of health services to improve the health system. They want to include members with links to groups and networks of people the NHS doesn’t always listen to.
