About Learning Disability Week 2018

Learning Disability Week 2018 was from 18 to 24 June and was all about health - with a big focus on Treat me well.

We wanted this to be a chance for people with a learning disability and NHS staff to celebrate and share good practice, and to work together to improve care that isn't good enough.

In order to do this we asked people to hold events in their local hospital in England and Northern Ireland throughout the week.
