What is the LeDeR programme?
Families, the health service and others were worried why people with learning disabilities were dying younger than others who do not have learning disabilities.
NHS England asked the University of Bristol to set up a new study to record and think about why this was happening.
People with learning disabilities can die up to 25+ years earlier and not live as healthy as other people who do not have learning disabilities.
When people die, the University of Bristol, the local NHS and councils work together to review why they have died. This review process is called LeDeR (sounds like leader).
Hounslow Mortality Strategic Group
This multi-agency group meet every 4 months to look at the data submitted from local reviews, including areas of good practice and areas where improvements in practice could be made.
The Group ensure all learning is shared across Hounslow social services, Safeguarding Board, Hounslow CCG, Hounslow and Richmond Healthcare Trust and West London Health Trust.
