Learning disability & autism training for health & care staff – Government consultation is open for responses. This is a significant stage in making sure the Department of Health and Social Care have the necessary information to design their training programme. Those with learning disabilities and autism have poorer health outcomes compared with other patient groups. Part of the reason is general reglect and lack of services and support across socio-economic and political institutions. If you work for the NHS it is especially important for you to contribute your thoughts on this consultation.
