What is LeDeR?

LeDeR is short for an NHS programme called ‘Learning from lives and deaths – People with a learning disability and autistic people’.

Why is LeDeR important?

The LeDeR programme looks to learn from the lives and deaths of people with a Learning Disability or Autism, using this knowledge to improve services and reduce health inequalities.

Health inequalities are unfair differences that are seen when someone receives healthcare and this can lead to poorer outcomes.

Experts by Experience are involved in every part of the Gloucestershire LeDeR programme. We make sure the voices of people with Learning Disabilities and Autistic Adults are heard

Our local report says what we have found out from our LeDeR reviews, what we can learn from them and how we can make changes to make services better in the future.
