How can we help you?

Treat me well is here!

Treat me well is our new campaign to transform how the NHS treats people with a learning disability in hospital.

Find out what we’re calling for and how you can help.

About Treat me well

1200 people with a learning disability die avoidably in hospital, each and every year.

We know the treatment people with a learning disability get in hospital is still not good enough in many parts of the country. 

This has to change. Which is why we've launched Treat me well.

Find out more about the campaign including how you can get involved and show your support.

Rachel visited hospital when she had severe stomach pains.

You can listen to Rachel's full story on SoundCloud - episode 2 is out now!
