Better Health for People with Learning Disabilities – Report

Did you know that people with learning disabilities have poorer health and die at a younger age than people without learning disabilities? Did you know that some of this poor health is avoidable?

At turro, we work with multiple learning disability organisations across the UK, recruiting quality managers for many of these organisations, based on who we feel has the experience and would be able to offer the best care possible to those services. We therefore wanted to make you aware of the following report by the Voluntary Organisations Disability Trust on better health for people with learning disabilities.

“Many of the health complications that people with learning disabilities experience are entirely preventable. It is totally unacceptable that people with learning disabilities experience poorer health outcomes and die younger than people in the general population. Social care providers have a key role to play in directly addressing these inequalities. This guide has been developed by VODG members to help social care providers ensure the requirements of people with learning disabilities are identified and communicated to health services. This resource helps to ensure better healthcare, and therefore better lives, for people who use social care services.” Rhidian Hughs – CE VODG
