Learning Disabilities

We recognise the additional difficulties faced by patients with a learning disability when accessing our hospital and community services.

We have a full time learning disability nurse specialist who can support patients with a learning disability, their family, carers and hospital staff, to identify the additional needs experienced by individuals and to plan reasonably adjusted pathways.

Completion of the ‘This is me, my care passport’ and additionally the Disability Distress Assessment Tool (DisDAT) for those who may have impaired communication skills can assist the medical and nursing teams to deliver more person centred care.
