The key to improving learning disability services lies with the people

Empowering people and their families has been a priority for NHS England as it looks to develop and improve its learning disability services.

Jane Cummings, Chief Nursing Officer (CNO) for England, said: giving people with learning disabilities their families and carers more say over their care was fundamental to the planning of future services.

The CNO was addressing NHS staff as part of an event to mark Learning Disability Week which runs to 21 June.
