Reasonable Adjustments Digital Flag roll out and training

From Learning Disability Week we have shown how the NHS is helping people to live longer, happier healthier lives by supporting staff and the families of people with a learning disability to provide the right care and support.

We have started to roll out the Reasonable Adjustments Digital flag across the NHS and publicly funded care. ​Please access free staff training to implement the Reasonable Adjustment Digital Flag – helping it to become part of a standard approach to care and treatment for all disabled people.​

You can watch this informative film about what reasonable adjustments are and the type of reasonable adjustments people with a learning disability and autistic people might need.
