The University of Bristol led LeDeR when it first began. They were responsible for the policy and the way we carry out reviews.

At the end of NHS England’s contract with the University of Bristol in 2021, we were able to:

  • think about what has gone well with LeDeR
  • identify areas of the programme that need to improve

We published a new policy in March 2021. To develop this, we worked with:

  • people with a learning disability
  • bereaved family members
  • stakeholders
  • LeDeR workforce
