A programme in Essex is collecting death reports of people with learning disabilities to help reduce the number of early deaths.
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. Thurrock CCG and Council are taking part in this Pan-Essex programme.
