‘Treat me well’ is Mencaps latest campaign to transform how the NHS treats people with a learning disability in hospital. Sadly, we know 1200 people with a learning disability die avoidably in hospital care, each and every year. This has to change.
Simple changes in hospital care make a big difference – better communication, clearer information and more time. Mencaps campaign calls for real change, so people with a learning disability always get the treatment they need when they are in hospital.
Join the campaign to make sure that every person with a learning disability is treated well in hospital. Sign up here to start taking action: http://www.mencap.org.uk/treatmewell
