When LeDeR began it was led by the University of Bristol. They were responsible for the overall policy and the way reviews were done. 

The end of NHS England and NHS Improvement’s contract with the University of Bristol in 2021 meant we had an opportunity to think about what has gone well with LeDeR to date, and to identify areas of the programme that need to improve. We worked with people with a learning disability, bereaved family members, stakeholders and the LeDeR workforce to develop a new policy which was published in March 2021.
