The aim of the Programme is to make improvements in the quality of health and social care service delivery for people with learning disabilities and to help reduce premature mortality and health inequalities faced by people with learning disabilities, through national and local reviews of deaths.
The Programme has now started, and we would appreciate your views about a number of aspects of the work.
We have set up a consultation that runs from now until 10th August to find out your views about:
• The core data to be collected at the notification of a death, at an initial ‘light touch’ local review, and in a full multidisciplinary review of the death of a person with learning disabilities (LD).
• The criteria for which deaths are would require an initial ‘light touch’ local review only, and which will require full multiagency review.
• The definition of key terms used in the Programme.
• The standards against which ‘best practice’ will be measured.
