Cancer screening and people with learning disabilities

Making reasonable adjustments to cancer screening: An update of the 2012 report
People with learning disabilities have a much lower participation rate in cervical, breast and bowel screening programmes than people in the general population. These inequalities can be reduced through targeted work.

There are a lot of existing, free resources that can be used to improve the uptake of cancer screening by people with learning disabilities. This updated IHaL report includes links to resources and examples of good practice to increase the uptake of screening programmes by people with learning disabilities.
