Tuesday 30th July 10 am to 2pm Kingston Hospital Education Centre

The health and care experience of people with a learning disability is important to the NHS and social care services, and forms part of our health and care plan for the borough.

To help capture learnings on where we can improve moving forward, there is a national programme called the learning disability mortality review ( LeDeR ). This has been running since 2016 and involves the review of all of the reported deaths of people with a learning disability, with the aim to highlight and share good practice and to support learning when problems and issues have been identified in the care and support of people with a learning disability.

We have been working together across the boroughs of Kingston and Richmond with all of our partners and colleagues to ensure that all of our notified reviews have been undertaken and completed in a timely manner. We have also been able to identify local areas of good practice as well as areas for learning.

Following all of this work both locally and nationally, we are now holding a learning and update event for carers and families of people with a learning disability as well as all health and social care organisations and staff who work with and support people with a learning disability.

We take this opportunity to invite you to this event and for you to forward this invitation to people with a learning disability, their families and carers as well as any organisation who you think would benefit, such as domiciliary care agencies, specialist care placements and supported living for people with a learning disability.

The event takes place at Kingston Hospital education centre from 10am to 2pm on Tuesday 30 July 2019.

The agenda ( to follow ) will include speakers who have been involved in reviews locally as well as speakers who have been involved in the national team at NHS England.

To register your interest in attending this event, please email Peter Warburton (peter.warburton@swlondon.nhs.uk) or Sarah Loades (sarah.loades@swlondon.nhs.uk)

Please reply directly to Peter or Sarah.
