The Confidential Inquiry into Premature Deaths of people with Learning Disabilities evidenced that people with learning disabilities die younger than other people in the population and emphasised the need for Annual Health Checks. More information at: www.bristol.ac.uk/cipold 

A number of publications from Public Health England provide information about health inequalities and how to overcome these. Evidence to support the requirement for Annual Health Checks and information about reasonable adjustments are also available on the disabled people section of the gov.uk website.

For information about Safeguarding Adults, please visit the Safer Derbyshire website. Details of how to make an adult safeguarding referral can be found on the Derby Safeguarding Adults Board website and the Derbyshire Safeguarding Adults Board website.

Learning Disability Partnership Boards 

Learning Disability Partnership Boards bring together all the public services in Derbyshire including city, district and borough councils, health services, housing agencies, police, education and community and voluntary groups. The boards:

  • improve the way public and community services support people with a learning disability
  • promote the rights, independence, choice and inclusion of people with learning disabilities.

 

Websites are available which provide more information about the Derbyshire Learning Disability Partnership Board and Derby City Learning Disability support.
