Improving Health Outcomes for People with Learning Disabilities in the South West - 12th September

Date:  Thursday 12th September 2019

Time:  10 am - 3.30 pm

Venue: The Wyvern Club, Moutfields Road, Taunton TA1 3BJ

This is the fourth health network meeting for the South West. The overall aim of the health network is to reduce the health inequalities that people with learning disabilities experience in the South West. 

This is a very broad remit so our particular focus is on:

  • The health elements regarding people with learning disabilities in the NHS England 10-year plan
  • The findings and recommendations of the LeDeR project

At this meeting we will be talking about the second LeDeR report and recommendations. We will spend some time, sharing resources relating to these recommendations. We will send you more details nearer the time. We will discuss the findings from the consultation into mandatory learning disability awareness training and what this means for us in the SW and report back on the Reasonable Adjustments Flag, the Health Check work and the Hospital Passport app.

We will also be talking about the actions identified at the last meeting and any updates.

We would like to hear from you if there are topics you would like to cover during the meeting. Just contact

Who should come?

Senior practitioners, commissioners and managers who are interested in the health of people with learning disabilities and who work in the South West. We also want to invite training managers to this meeting, but we do not know who they are – so we are relying on you to forward this information to them.
