We provide high quality healthcare services primarily to the residents of East Lancashire and Blackburn with Darwen, which have a combined population in the region of 530,000.
The Learning Disability Liaison Nurse Service works with people with learning disabilities and autism who are 16 years old or over.
If you (or someone you care for) are coming to hospital, for any reason, let us know and we can help and support you.
Everyone with a learning disability is encouraged to use a Hospital Passport which helps inform hospital staff about the needs of the person with a learning disability and how to support them.
The passport is owned and controlled by the person themselves and should be brought with them when they attend hospital.
The passport also identifies the person who knows the patient best, such as a carer or a member of the hospital staff; they can provide valuable advice and support in understanding the person’s individual needs.
You can access a copy of a hospital passport template here
Please call 01254 263555 and ask for the Learning Disability Nurse.
