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

Making Choices About my Health and Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards.

Making sure you have the information you need to say yes or no!

City Hospitals in Sunderland want to help people who have learning disabilities to understand as much about their care and treatment as they can. They have developed a leaflet that helps you to understand the choices that you might need to make, for example to have an operation or not.

The leaflet will suggest who can help you make choices and decisions and information about the process that should be followed.
