Learning Disabilities

Local learning disabilities services are commissioned by the CCG and NHS England.  Generally, services users are supported at home or in facilities as close to home as possible, although sometimes, when patients require specialised services, they may need to be cared for out of the immediate area.

Learning Disabilities Strategy for North Yorkshire 2017-2022

We worked with North Yorkshire County Council and local clinical commissioning groups on a draft of the Learning Disability Strategy for the local area.

The draft is based on what people with learning disabilities, their families and their carers told us.

Assuring Transformation Data and Patient Objections

The CCG and its partners have put in place systems for the ‘fair processing’ of patient objections that helps to inform people with a learning disability that patient data will be shared between primary care and secondary care providers.

‘What is Assuring Transformation’, an easy-read leaflet for patients and their families/carers, has been made available through mental health / learning disability hospitals to ensure there are systems in place to manage any patient objections.

Learning Disability Matters for Families website

A new website has been launched for 'Learning Disabilities Matters for Families', which is a great resource for parents and carers of young people with a learning disability.

The website also contains helpful information for people caring for a child who they think might have a learning disability. Please see the video below for more information:
