The Learning Disabilities Mortality Review (LeDeR) programme

On Friday 1 September the Learning Disabilities Mortality Review (LeDeR) Programme goes live across Essex.  The LeDeR is a national NHS-funded programme.

As part of the LeDeR, we want to improve the quality of health and social care for people with learning disabilities.

We are doing this by supporting local reviews of deaths of people with learning disabilities in Essex.

There is a LeDeR section you can find at http://castlepointandrochfordccg.nhs.uk/your-services/essex-transforming-care-partnership/leder-programme

The LeDeR website contains more information about the LeDeR in Essex and how to contact the programme.  Anyone can contact them.
