The Mencap “Death by Indifference” campaign summarises the initial “Death by Indifference” Report which tells the stories of six deaths of people with learning disabilities, the subsequent Inquiry “Healthcare for All” and the “Confidential Inquiry into Premature Deaths of People with Learning Disabilities”.

These patient stories provide powerful drivers for improving patient safety for people with learning disabilities and the campaign includes a “Getting It Right” charter for healthcare organisations to sign up to and implement as a safety standard.
