Diabetes and learning disability, reasonable adjustments needed along a diabetes pathway

The prevalence rates of both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes were identified to be higher in people with a learning disability compared to the general population.

To ensure the same care is available to people with a learning disability, NHS RightCare has published a pathway for diabetes including the reasonable adjustments expected to be made for people with a learning disability.  This document will support commissioners applying the NHS RightCare Pathway for diabetes to people with learning disability, so that all receive the same level of care, understanding and outcomes.
