New programme on measuring the deaths of people with learning disabilities launches in Essex.
People with learning disabilities are four times as likely to die of preventable causes compared with the general population. The Learning Disabilities Mortality Review (LeDeR) Programme aims to help reduce premature mortality and health inequalities for people with learning disabilities in England through local reviews of deaths of people with learning disabilities. Thurrock CCG and Council are taking part in this Pan-Essex programme.
This programme was officially launched across Essex on 1 September 2017. The leaflet and poster below provide further information.
