The long-awaited publication of the Learning Disabilities Mortality Annual Report last week only served to tell us what we already know: people with learning disabilities keep being failed by the NHS. Every year the Healthcare Quality Improvement Partnership publishes a report which reviews the process for the deaths of people with learning difficulties.
This year’s report told us that 1,311 cases involving a learning disability were passed to NHS England between July 2016 and November 2017 and only 103 (8%) have been reviewed so far.
