Improving access to primary care for people with learning disabilities

Leeds West CCG (Clinical Commissioning Group) is seeking views from people with learning disabilities, their carers or parents of a person with learning disabilities, to see how they can improve their experiences at local GP practices (also known as primary care services) within west Leeds.

People with learning disabilites often have more complex health problems and may not always get equal access to healthcare, due in part to communication difficulties. There is evidence that shows people with learning disabilities have asked for better information to ensure that services are more accessible and health inequalities are reduced.

GPs, practice nurses and other healthcare professionals may need specialist skills and communication training, which service users with learning disabilities could support them with.
