Have your say on learning disability help

PUBLISHED: 18:21 10 November 2010

PEOPLE from across Great Yarmouth and Waveney have been invited to have their say on future plans to improve health and wellbeing for people with learning disabilities.

The consultation gives participants the chance to share their views on the way in which the region’s health services should be transformed over the next decade for the benefit of people with learning disabilities and their families.

The aim is to ensure everyone gets equal access to health services and feels supported to make informed and personal choices about their health.

The consultation has been launched by NHS East of England and runs until 11 January 2011.

Kim Arber, mental health and learning disabilities commissioning manager with NHS Great Yarmouth and Waveney, said: “This consultation gives people the opportunity to influence the future of health services and the ways in which they can be improved.

“We would encourage people with learning disabilities, their families, carers or anyone else with an interest in this specific areas of healthcare to feedback their views to help ensure the best possible services in the future.”
