Health Inequalities For People With Learning Disabilities And Autism

EDM number 1365 in 2017-19, proposed by Norman Lamb on 11/06/2018.
Categorised under the topics of Disability discrimination, Health services and Special educational needs.

That this House recognises the health inequalities that exist for people with learning disabilities and autism, including inequalities in primary healthcare; understands that health inequalities lead to reduced life expectancy for people with learning disabilities and autism; welcomes learning disability and autism provider Dimensions' campaign #MyGPandMe to encourage the use of reasonable adjustments for people with learning disabilities and autism in general practice; notes that Dimensions' research shows that 98 per cent of GPs believe they would benefit from learning disability and autism training; and urges the Government to introduce mandatory learning disability and autism training for all primary healthcare professionals led by the experts, people with learning disabilities and autism themselves, to reduce health inequalities.

This motion has been signed by a total of 21 MPs.
