This year, Learning Disability Week (18 - 24 June) will be all about health - with a big focus on the Treat me well campaign.

What we want to do

We want to use Learning Disability Week 2018 to spread the word about the problems people with a learning disability can face in getting good healthcare in hospital, and how we can change this.

We want to involve NHS staff in the Treat me well campaign - giving them the chance to hear from people with a learning disability and to think about the simple changes they can make which would make a big difference to people with a learning disability.

We want to give people with a learning disability and NHS staff the chance to celebrate and share good practice, and to work together to improve care that isn't good enough.
