Confidential inquiry into premature deaths of people with a learning disability

This research found that 1,238 children and adults die across England every year because they are not getting the right health care.

This statistic is a national estimate based on the findings of the confidential inquiry into premature deaths of people with a learning disability. The key recommendation from the inquiry team is for the establishment and funding of a national learning disability mortality review body in England which would allow for the continued collection of mortality data for people with a learning disability and investigation of the most serious cases.
