‘Getting it right’ is Mencap’s campaign for equal healthcare for all children and adults with a learning disability.
Mencap wants to make sure that every person with a learning disability has their human rights upheld. This includes their right to equal healthcare. Disability discrimination legislation requires individuals and authorities to make reasonable adjustments to enable people with disabilities to access services.
The stories from Mencap’s ‘Death by indifference’ report show just what can happen when things go wrong. We want the NHS to make sure that this is never allowed to happen again.
