Health and Care of People with Learning Disabilities, 2018-191 summarises data relating to 54% of patients in England on key health issues for people recorded by their GP as having a learning disability. It also includes comparative data about patients recorded by their GP as not having a learning disability, to show differences in health and care between the two groups.
For the first time, this publication contains a standardised mortality ratio, comparing mortality for those with a learning disability against those without.
Statistics about the prevalence of various health conditions, such as epilepsy and heart disease, are also included.
