Sheffield Voices was commissioned by the CCG, which means the Clinical Commissioning Group,  to run a series of events to find out what people with learning disabilities and Autistic people feel about health services in Sheffield. We wanted to do this as Sheffield Voices has been concerned about people with learning disabilities and Autistic people dying too young and a big part of that has been the healthcare they have received. 

People have been reporting to us that the experience in hospital has not been very good. People have been telling us that they cannot get access to their doctor's surgery easily and that people have struggled to get repeat medication. 

Sheffield Voices held two online meetings, a face-to-face meeting, shared a survey and left a phone line open for people to leave messages. 

Overall, we connected with around 100 people who were able to give us their views. 

We have written all the information up in a report which you can view here. 

We have also included a full transcript of all the conversations and some pictures we took of the event.
