University’s contract with LeDeR programme will end
15 January 2020
The University of Bristol’s involvement with the LeDeR programme began in 2015, supporting NHS England to establish the programme. The programme is now fully operational across England and all deaths of people with learning disabilities, aged 4 and over, are being reviewed.
The contract with the University of Bristol was for a five-year period. That contract will come to an end, as planned, on 31 May 2020.
The university is pleased that NHS England has pledged to continue the LeDeR programme and uphold the commitment it made to LeDeR in the NHS Long Term Plan.
