Overview

Shropshire Community Health NHS Trust aims to work closely with people with Learning Disabilities, their families and carers to ensure that they are actively involved in the planning and decision making of care delivery.

We aim to ensure people with learning disabilities have access to the same community health services as everyone else.

Our aim is to ensure that the needs, choices and preferences of this group of our community are understood and that services are available to reflect individual choices.

We want people with learning disabilities to be valued equally, participate fully in their communities and be treated with dignity and respect. We are committed to on-going review of our pathways of care to improve the experience and care of people with learning disabilities. Our aim is to implement all appropriate measures to ensure all people with learning disabilities accessing our services have effective person-centred care, with reasonable individual adjustments delivered by staff with an enabling and positive attitude.

If you have any related comments, concerns or queries or would like to be involved in our patients and carer panels please contact the above.
