for NHS Staff & Students

When a patient with learning disabilities visits a hospital or medical setting they can experience difficulties in receiving the care that they need for various reasons.

A health profile is the best way to overcome any obstacles as it helps to overcome any communication issues, it provides nurses and clinicians with essential medical information  and most importantly will encourage staff  to make any reasonable adjustments  to make the hospital/medical  visit a better experience.
