The Oliver McGowan Mandatory Training in learning disability and autism has been signed into law as part of the Government’s Health and Social Care Act. Oliver McGowan was just 18 years old when he died in 2016, after being given anti-psychotic medication against both his own and his parents’ wishes. Since then, his parents have been campaigning for mandatory Learning Disability and Autism training for all health and social care staff, to ensure that they have the skills and understanding to support people with a learning disability and/or autism. The amendment to the Bill has now been accepted by government.
