We are pleased to announce that we are working towards our ‘Learning Disability Friendly’ Practice status.
To ensure we are accessible to all, we have completed a ‘Learning Disability Action Plan’ and have planned team training for all our staff later this month (January 2019).
We are trying to expand our connections with people with learning disabilities. We are looking for patient representatives who either have a learning disability, or their carers, to join our Patient Participation Group. This will ensure that we are meeting all our patients’ needs and we have not overlooked something that may improve the experience of visiting the doctors. If you are interested please Complete the Patient Group Sign-up Form Online . If you have any ideas you wish to share please email us at WHCCG.NewMiltonHC@nhs.net.
If you have a Learning Disability you may wish to tell us more about you through completing My Learning Disability Care Plan or ‘All about me’.
Some patients may require additional support in reading our practice leaflets. We are putting together a folder in the waiting area which will contain the easy read leaflets we have available. If you would like a paper copy of a leaflet please ask Reception. There is a wealth of information available for those who require this style of communication and there is an excellent website where many resources can be found: www.easyhealth.org.uk
If you would like local learning disability support please visit New Forest Mencap or Visit Connect to Support Hampshire to find information, advice and services to manage your care.
