Abstract

The need to meet the healthcare needs of people with a learning disability is increasingly being highlighted. Reports such as the Health of the Nation Strategy for People with Learning Disabilities (Department of Health (DH) 1995) emphasised the need for health promotion, surveillance and care among this population. Nearly 10 years on and inadequate health care for people with a learning disability continues to be a serious issue.
