You can record your reflections on this form or via your learning diary here: https://www.fourteenfish.com/about/learningdiary CQC are particularly keen to see any evidence of your listening and how you apply it.

Mandatory Training in Learning Disabilities and Autism

This training is to ensure all staff working in health and social care receive learning disability and autism training. It is called the Oliver McGowan Mandatory Training after Oliver McGowan, a patient whose death in 2016 triggered a government consultation. ( See more info from Health Education England)

The Government has introduced a requirement for anyone registered with CQC to ensure their employees receive learning disability and autism training appropriate to their role. This has been done as part of the Health and Care Act 2022, therefore making it a statutory responsibility. CQC will be monitoring practices to make sure their staff will have done this training

On 1st July 2022 it became statutory to complete this training, but the training packages are not yet available. In the mean-time if practices wanted to start to update their staff we have a 15 minute audio podcast on Patients with Learning Disabilities and the Flu Jab which could be interesting to share with your team. We also have a recorded webinar - Learning Disabilities in Patients - Autism: What is our role in primary care? – where Micky Koenig from the Wiltshire Autism Diagnostic Service was joined by David Reynolds who shared his personal experiences of living with autism and a discussion was had as to what our role in Primary Care is. Both resources are FREE to access below.

When the official training packages are released, we will share these with you.

You may also find it useful to watch to our Practice Manager update where this topic was discussed by our Directors of Primary Care.
