The learning disabilities transforming care programme is designed to make health and care services better so more people with a learning disability, autism or both can live in the community, close to home and with the right support.
Learning disability is a major priority for NHS England. To make this happen we work closely with the Government and other health and care organisations on lots of different projects to improve people’s lives. These include:
- STOMP which is working to stop the over-medication of people with a learning disability, autism or both with psychotropic medicines
- Annual health checks for anyone over the age of 14 with a learning disability
- Ask Listen Do which is supporting people with a learning disability, autism or both and their families and carers to give feedback, raise a concern or make a complaint.
