NHS: National Collaborative Commissioning Unit
February 2020 | Improving Care Improving Lives – What is it like for people with a learning disability
who are getting care through hospital?
This is an important piece of work. It shows the NHS what the main issues are when they are treating patients with a learning disability.
It is not ok that some people with learning disabilities have been living in places like hospitals for a long time.
People with learning disabilities used to live in hospital all their lives. The NHS is trying to move on from this.
