NHS England to invest in building the right support for people with a learning disability

Patients with a learning disability, autism or both are set to benefit from over £10m investment by NHS England to help them lead more independent lives, closer to their friends and family.

The funding will support 14 local transforming care partnerships – made up of NHS organisations, local authorities and NHS England commissioners, working closely with people who use services, their families and providers – to develop new, high-quality, community services for people in their area.
