Encouraging clinicians to register people with a learning disability

There are more than 1 million people in England with a learning disability, but only 200,000 on their GP’s learning disability quality and outcomes framework (QOF) register.

Unless a patient’s status is registered then reasonable adjustments to care for that person cannot be made. This means health problems are likely to be missed or inadequately treated. NHS England has produced a template letter for clinicians to use to support this process.
