In the Government’s response to the second Annual Report of the Learning Disabilities Mortality Review Programme, we committed to a public consultation on mandatory learning disability training for health and social care staff, but not nursery staff, which will conclude by the end of March 2019.

An impact assessment considering the costs of delivering mandatory learning disability training will be published with the consultation document.
