The Learning Disabilities and/or Autism Service can provide help and support if a young person needs to go into hospital.

They are an all age service and are here to give advice and support to:

  • Adults, children and young people with learning disabilities and/or autism who are coming into hospital or currently using their services
  • Parents and carers of a patient with learning disabilities and/or autism

If a young person is coming into hospital or is already in hospital, you can contact them if you want to talk about any specific needs they may have and to ensure that any reasonable adjustments they may require are put into place.

There is more information available on the Learning Disability and Autism pages of the Northern Care Alliance NHS Group website here and in the leaflets below:
