All health and social care workers are to be given mandatory training on autism and learning disabilities after the death of a teenager.
Oliver McGowan, 18, died at Southmead hospital in Bristol in 2016 after being given a drug he was allergic to despite repeat warning from his parents.
The government has announced funding of £1.4m to develop and test the new training package.
Training is not currently mandatory and varies, a government spokesperson said.
The targeted programme will be “named in memory of Oliver McGowan and in recognition of his family’s tireless campaigning for better training for staff” a government spokesperson said.
It will draw on case studies which “capture exactly why NHS and social care staff need learning disability and autism training” the spokesperson said.
