People with a learning disability and their carers have given feedback on the quality of the services they receive.

Big Health Check days were held at Castle Park, Doncaster, and were well attended, according to health bosses.

RDaSH assistant director for learning disability services Chris Williams said: “By asking people what they think is being done well and what needs to be improved, we can better tailor our services.

“Research shows that people with learning disabilities are more likely to die before the age of 50 than the rest of the general population.

“In order to change this we need to ensure people with a learning disability can access health services easily.”
