Declare Your Care: Learning disabilities

Content from Care Quality Commission


Our Declare Your Care campaign is encouraging people with learning disabilities, their family, carers and advocates to speak openly about their experience of care, good or bad.

Research shows people with a learning disability are more likely to regret not complaining about poor care than those without. They are also twice as likely to have concerns about maternity services and mental health services.

Lack of information given about health conditions and treatment options were revealed as the main reasons for people with a learning disability or their carer to want to raise a concern. Find out more about the campaign and hear people talk about how they shared their experience of care
