Simple changes in hospital care can make a big difference – better
communication, more time and clearer information.
But 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.
1,200 people with a learning disability die avoidably every year.
Our campaign, Treat me well, calls on NHS staff to make reasonable adjustments for people with a learning disability which can help to save lives.
