Report on health and care of people with learning disabilities published

NHS Digital has published a report on the health and care of people with learning disabilities. It includes information collected from over half of GP practices in England between 2014 and 2016.

The report identifies potential differences in the treatment, health status, and outcomes of people with learning disabilities compared with the rest of the population. It includes information on the percentage of patients known to their GP as having a learning disability who received an annual learning disability health check.
