As a result, NHS Digital no longer supports any version of Internet Explorer for our web-based products, as it involves considerable extra effort and expense, which cannot be justified from public funds.

The publications used compare health conditions of people recorded as having a learning disability. The publications show aggregated data on key health issues for people who are recorded by their GP as having a learning disability, and comparative data about a control group who are not recorded by their GP as having a learning disability.
NHS Digital did not extract any patient level data. NHS Digital received data aggregated at general practice level. The published data are further aggregated at Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) level reported against 77 indicators, in most cases split by age and gender categories.
