Abstract

People with learning disabilities represent a small and vulnerable group in society who commonly encounter barriers in accessing and using health care.

In particular, it highlights the changes in legislation, policy and practice that have occurred recently to ensure the rights of people with learning disabilities to access health care are upheld.
