Our learning disability support services helps people with a learning disability and their carers when visiting our hospitals or community services.
We work with adults and children who have a learning disability who need additional support to access our services.
What can we help with?
We want to improve the care you receive when you visit our services.
Reasonable adjustments can be made to our services so they meet your individual needs.
We can also co-ordinate care for when you attend hospital. In addition to this, we make sure that all those involved in your care are aware of your additional needs.
We support and advise our staff on personalised care and delivery of services and act as facilitator between agencies.
