Ensuring access to healthcare for people with learning disabilities

We are committed to supporting people with learning disabilities which dovetails with a performance indicator set by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) to ensure access to healthcare for people with learning disabilities.

As such, we have implemented a number of measures to improve the support we provide which are detailed on these web pages, including a dedicated executive lead for learning disabilities. 

Let's get it right for patients with learning disabilities.

Healthcare Communication Resource

This has been developed to ensure that people with communication difficulties have help to understand what is happening to them and also to support the person to express themselves. The resource contains information about why people may have difficulties understanding or communicating, provides useful tips  to improve communication and pages of pictures to help with communication.

Guide to consent

Easyhealth has published a Department of Health easy read leaflet for people with learning disabilities to learn more about consent.
