Learning disability and Autism service

We know that coming to the hospital can be a worrying time for anyone. People with a learning disability, autistic people and their carers may need extra information and support to make their hospital experience better. We want to improve our services for patients with learning disabilities and  autistic patients and have a lead practitioner for Learning Disabilities who supports patients, carers and the Trust.


We can help with...

  • Planning admissions 
  • Supporting people with a learning disability and autistic patients during hospital visits or stays. 
  • Checking reasonable adjustments are put in place
  • Promoting the use of health passports
  • Making sure hospital staff are aware about your needs
  • Communication, including accessible information
  • Support and advice for patients, families and carers
  • Training 


Hospital Passport

A hospital passport is a document about people and their health need, but It also has other useful information, such as interests, likes, dislikes, how people like to communicate and any reasonable adjustments that  they might need.
