Partners in Care Forum- LD and Autism Focused


The CCG are launching a new quarterly forum designed specifically around the needs and challenges of our care providers who support those with learning disabilities and autism. This is open to all including those who supporting those with LD/autism in older adult focused services, and professionals working in health services who work with and support care providers.

The first meeting took place on  Wednesday 21 July and focused on  the annual health checks that GP practices now provide for those with LD. This included what is a good health check, what to expect and how to prepare and support your service users when having one. Providers and professionals supporting those with LD shared ideas on how to improve uptake of these and the quality of health checks. A second forum took place on Thursday 20 January focusing on the Community Learning Disability Team and the support they can offer providers.

If anybody would like to suggest any topics to cover at future forums, or for more information on the forum then please contact:
