Learning Disabilities for Providers

For queries about this project please contact Leigh Jenkins.

The Learning Disabilities project ran for the first time in 2014, covering both the commissioning and provision of LD services across the NHS. LD has a complex commissioning framework and provider arrangements, and the project aims to bring clarity to aid understanding of provision, performance and good practice.

This project covers the provision of LD services across the NHS and looks at service models, access and activity metrics, workforce, finance, quality, effectiveness and safety, as well as patient outcomes.
