LeDeR programme documents 2017

The Learning Disabilities Mortality Review (LeDeR) Programme is commissioned by the Healthcare Quality Improvement Partnership (HQIP) on behalf of NHS England. It is being delivered by a team based at the University of Bristol, led by Dr Pauline Heslop.



The LeDeR programme was one of the recommendations of the Confidential Inquiry into premature deaths of people with learning disabilities (CIPOLD)

CIPOLD reported that for every one person in the general population who dies from a cause of death amenable to good quality care, three people with learning disabilities will do so.

One of the key recommendations of CIPOLD was for the greater scrutiny of deaths of people with learning disabilities. In this way, potentially modifiable circumstances leading to a death could be identified and avoided in the future through improvements to health and care services.
