Poor quality healthcare is one of the main causes of health inequalities and avoidable deaths in people with a learning disability. Despite research highlighting the challenges people with a learning disability face in accessing Primary Care, and the initiatives created which aim at reducing those health inequalities, such as Annual Health Checks, problems and barriers remain.

Our partners have shared their personal experiences in a short animation video to highlight these issues and empower Primary Care staff to take positive action.
