Veterans Mental Health

Veterans from across Norfolk are being invited to drop-in to two new groups which offer specially-tailored help for a wide range of mental health conditions as well as access to a raft of other support services. Organised by former army guardsman Luke Woodley in conjunction with Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust (NSFT), the groups give veterans the chance to meet, share experiences and access any help they may need.

NHS Norwich CCG's commitment to mental health

NHS Norwich CCG currently invests more than 18% of its budget into mental health services. About 50% of this funding is spent with Norfolk and Suffolk NHS FT.

Learning Disabilities Mortality Review (LeDeR) Programme

NHS Clinical Commissioning Groups in Norfolk and Waveney are part of the national Learning Disability Mortality Review (LeDeR) programme, commissioned by the Healthcare Quality Improvement Partnership on behalf of NHS England, and delivered by the University of Bristol.

The LeDeR Programme aims to make improvements to the lives of people with learning disabilities through reviewing the modifiable factors that may be associated with a person’s death. The programme will also collate and share the anonymised information about the deaths of people with learning disabilities so that common themes, learning points and recommendations can be identified and taken forward into policy and practice improvements.

For more information about the LeDeR Programme, visit the University of Bristol’s website: http://www.bristol.ac.uk/sps/leder/

The Local Area Coordinator for Norfolk and Waveney is Alison Leather, Director of Quality Assurance at NHS South Norfolk CCG. If you wish to contact Alison regarding the LeDeR Programme, email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
