Everyone has the right to access healthcare services in a way that suits them. We want to help you get the most from your appointment or stay in hospital.

Who are the Learning Disabilities team

Our Learning Disabilities team helps us to provide care and treatment that help you.

This includes making changes to the way we do things to make it easier for you.

You can have longer appointment times if you need to.

You can bring anything with you that helps you to communicate, like communication boards.

The team will also make sure you understand your care and treatment plan.

We can also offer you longer appointment times and encourage you to bring any tools that you use (e.g. communication boards).
