Our Treat Me Well campaign is all about tackling the issue of people with learning disabilities having much lower life expectancies than people without learning disabilities.

On average the lives of people with learning disabilities are 20 years shorter than people without learning disabilities.

One of the main reasons for this is that people with learning disabilities are unable to access healthcare. Communication difficulties are a major reason for this, which is why we have been campaigning for health passports.

We are proud to announce that health passports were introduced in Harrow last November. You can download your own health passport by clicking here.

We are also campaigning for easy read information to make sure people with learning disabilities are able to understand more about their treatment and a say over the care they receive.

In the future we are hoping to introduce training for NHS staff and healthcare university students to improve the way they treat and care for people with learning disabilities.
