Health Matters: Learning Disabilities Liaison Provision (UHBW) - Tuesday 22 June, 10am-12noon
People with a learning disability can sometimes miss out on the support they need to access healthcare. Simple changes in the way that hospitals provide care can make a big difference. As part of the online event, health professionals in Bristol and Weston will be raising awareness of the support available for people with learning disabilities who are accessing care. There will be a panel of expert speakers who will talk to families, patients, carers and healthcare staff about the importance of asking for and providing ‘reasonable adjustments’ – helpful changes to the way a service works to make it easier for people with disabilities. There will also be a Q&A session so that people can ask any questions that they might have. The event will take place online on Tuesday 22 June 2021 at 10am-12 noon and will be hosted by University Hospitals Bristol and Weston NHS Foundation Trust. To book your place and receive a link to the event, please book here or contact FoundationTrust@uhbw.nhs.uk or call 0117 342 3764.
