Learning Disabilities

Adults and children who have learning disabilities can access all health services in the county. Reasonable adjustments will be made by doctors, nurses and other people individuals come into contact with.

All NHS services have a responsibility to provide equal services to everyone including people with a learning disability.

Commissioning (buying) services for people with learning disabilities involves working together in effective partnership and, through this, securing better health and support for local people while safeguarding this most vulnerable group of our population.
