Learning disability liaison service

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 reasonable adjustments.

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