The Confidential Inquiry into Premature Deaths of people with Learning Disabilities evidenced that people with learning disabilities die younger than other people in the population and emphasised the need for Annual Health Checks. More information at: www.bristol.ac.uk/cipold 

A number of publications from Improving Health and Lives (the Public Health England Learning Disability Observatory) provide information about health inequalities and how to overcome these. They also provide evidence to support the requirement for Annual Health Checks.

Learning Disability Partnership Boards 

Learning Disability Partnership Boards bring together all the public services in Derbyshire including city, district and borough councils, health services, housing agencies, police, education and community and voluntary groups. The boards:

  • improve the way public and community services support people with a learning disability
  • promote the rights, independence, choice and inclusion of people with learning disabilities.

 

Websites are available which provide more information about the Derbyshire Learning Disability Partnership Board and Derby City Learning Disability Partnership Board.
