Death of Oliver McGowan

19 October 2020

A short statement from the LeDeR team

We welcome the publications today relating to the death of Oliver McGowan. Our thoughts are with Oliver’s family who have campaigned tirelessly for better care for people with learning disabilities. The lessons learned and recommendations made must be acted on to improve service provision for people with learning disabilities.

The LeDeR programme values suggestions as to how the processes for reviewing deaths of people with learning disabilities can be strengthened to ensure accurate and high-quality reviews are undertaken. We will work with NHS England to incorporate these recommendations into all review processes in the future.
