I hope it's okay to post this here, but Mods if you feel the need to move or delete it please do so.

Someone who I have "e-known" for years has started a petition to "Prevent avoidable deaths by making autism/learning disability training mandatory". Heartbreakingly, this has come up following hospital treatment of her mildly autistic son which resulted in his death.

The petition is here: https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/221033

The painful background to the situation is summed up here: https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/www.bris ... 474471.amp

I leave it for your consideration.

You'll be pleased to know this attracted the necessary number of signatures and was debated in Parliament this week, on 22nd October.
