Learning disability and autism training for health and care staff

The government has published its response to what people said about its proposals for mandatory learning disability and autism training for health and care staff.

This is the Government response to the consultation on proposals for introducing mandatory learning disability and autism training for health and social care staff, which was published on 13 February 2019 and closed on 26 April 2019. The Government received 5,155 responses to the consultation.

Consulting on proposals for mandatory learning disability and autism training was one of the commitments made in the Government’s response to the second annual report of the Learning Disability Mortality Review (LeDeR) Programme, which recommended that mandatory learning disability training should be provided to all staff, delivered in conjunction with people with learning disabilities and their families.

This response sets out the views from respondents to the consultation as well as the measures the Government intend to take to implement mandatory learning disability and autism training.
