In the second of a new series of reports, we have highlighted the feedback we’ve heard from people with learning disabilities.

Everything we have heard from people is included in the report.  We’ve heard some positive experiences but also not so positive such as,

“Staff in A&E would not listen to me when I explained what we needed to support his severe learning difficulties. Staff refused to offer us some quiet space so we spent 8 hours in the main noisy waiting area. Our specialist carer suggested he could wait in our adapted vehicle but that was ignored as too was our request that he was sedated before examination and treatment.”
