Learning Disability Mortality Review (LeDeR) programme


On 12 November 2020 the University of Bristol published its report into the deaths of 206 people with a learning disability at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. The report highlighted some good practice in the care of people with a learning disability, but it also highlighted concerns about the care that some people received.

The NHS is committed to working with partners and stakeholders to embed the learning from the report and implement the changes to services required. This short report is designed to outline the actions that we will be working with system partners to implement so that action is taken.
