NHS learning disability jobs drive

Organisations across the health service in England are being provided with tools to help them meet a challenge to recruit people with learning disabilities.

The programme is the next step in a commitment made in the NHS Five Year Forward View to make NHS workforces more representative of the local communities they serve. It takes the form of a new national network providing advice, ideas and impetus to all NHS organisations – from local hospital trusts to national bodies – to remove barriers and take steps to accelerate employment of people with learning disabilities in the NHS.
