Improving health care for people with learning disabilities

Developing reasonably adjusted health care services and pathways

Support and facilitation to design, develop or reasonably adjust health care services and health care pathways to ensure that they meet the needs of people with learning disabilities. We work with Associates who have extensive subject knowledge of learning disability and health care who are able to provide expert knowledge and targeted input. We facilitate a North West Staying Healthy Group that can be commissioned to work with commissioners and partners on any health related issue. Using our extensive networks of experts by experience and health facilitators we are also able to provide a one off focus group for engagement and consultation or a more extensive intervention to co produce a service, strategy or pathway. Recent examples of work include; support to develop a reasonably adjusted eye health care pathway across two North West areas, input into developing the NHSE Learning Disability Improvement Standards for NHS Trusts and consultation about changes to oral health services
