Following a mad few days Dr Jill Bradshaw and Prof Chris Hutton have managed to have their letter concerning the preventable death of Connor Sparrowhawk (aged 18) printed in The Guardian, this coincides with a debate in the House of Lords today into the premature deaths of people with learning disabilities.

In just over a week 560 signatures were collected and there is still time to register with the group seeking  change in the way those with learning disabilities are treated and valued.
