Privacy Notice: LeDer Programme

Learning from Lives and Deaths - People with a learning disability and autistic people, or LeDeR (formerly known as the Learning from Deaths Review Programme) started in April 2017.

LeDeR is a service improvement programme which aims to improve care, reduce health inequalities, and prevent premature mortality of people with a learning disability and autistic people by reviewing information about the health and social care people received.

LeDeR requires information about the closest living relative, family member or close friend (name, contact details, relationship), in order to invite them to contribute their views to the review.
