Mandatory Learning Disability & Autism Training for Health & Care staff

The government wants to know how we can make sure that health and social care staff have the right training to understand the needs of people with a learning disability and autistic people, and make reasonable adjustments to support them.

The consultation considers issues around the training and development staff need to better support people with a learning disability or autistic people.

They want to know what people think about their proposals on:

  • the planned content of the training
  • how the training should be delivered
  • how to involve people with a learning disability or autistic people in training
  • how we can mandate, monitor and evaluate the impact of training

The consultation will be of particular interest to people with a learning disability or autistic people, the families and carers of people with a learning disability or autistic people, patient groups, providers of health and social care services.

The consultation closes on 12 April 2019.  Please follow the link below for more information.
