Learning from Lives and Deaths Review (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 and / or autism, and uses the knowledge obtained from LeDeR reviews 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 for people with learning disabilities and/or autism.

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

Our local report sets out our local responses to 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.
