Information from the Mencap website www.mencap.org.uk/get-involved/learning-disability-week-2018
This year, Learning Disability Week (18 – 24 June) is all about health – with a big focus on the Treat me well campaign.
Simple changes in hospital care can make a big difference – better communication, more time and clearer information.
But we know the treatment people with a learning disability get in hospital is still not good enough in many parts of the country. This has to change.
