Providing useful information for people with learning disabilities, their carers and all health professionals

Summary Care Records

We want to make sure that people with a learning disability have a good experience when using health services. One way to do that is make sure that we know as much about you as possible.

The summary care record holds extra information about you and is kept at your doctors, it can be shared with other health professionals if you consent to this.

Please click on the leaflet below to find out more about the summary care records. It would be great if you could tell your doctor’s surgery things about you that could be added to your record that will make your experience better.

Examples of this are things like

A longer appointment.

A quiet area to wait.

Easy read information.

Palliative Care -Delivering Excellence

We have been working closely with our local hospice, St Benedict’s to develop information for people with a learning disability who may be reaching the end of their lives.

These helpful leaflets can be found under the ‘Palliative Care Section’ in Other Health Services.

Beverley Brown and Matthew Rutherford help deliver important teaching to Doctors and Nurses in Sunderland.

We  recently attended the Stadium of Light to deliver an awareness session in relation to the health needs of people with learning disability and autism to hundreds of doctors and nurses in Sunderland who were at their monthly time in time out session.

The session went well and we would like to offer a huge thank you to both Beverley Brown and Matthew Rutherford who spoke form the heart and were very professional.

Well done guys !
