VODG members invited to showcase good practice resulting from LeDeR

The Learning Disabilities Mortality Review Programme (LeDeR) was established to drive improvements in the quality of health and social care service provision for people with learning disabilities by looking at why people with learning disabilities typically die much earlier than average.

VODG is supporting NHS England and NHS Improvement to share examples of local areas, systems, organisations, teams or individuals who have changed their practice to improve health outcomes and reduce premature mortality for people with a learning disability as a result of findings from LeDeR.

To contribute examples, VODG members are invited to join a webinar on Monday 16 December in which representatives from NHS England and NHS Improvement will outline further details of what they are looking for, how members can showcase their work and inspire others to act.

The webinar will start at 1pm. To join, please use this link and follow the onscreen instructions to connect to audio via phone or your computer.
