Following a recent visit to A&E at the LGI I was asked by Ann, the lady I was with, to send some feedback. Sadie Dunne, Lead Nurse for Learning Disabilities, arranged the visit for us so that we could find out more about A&E and take some photographs for a possible easy read guide.
We were made very welcome by Karen Meroz, the Learning Disability A&E lead, who took us through an imaginary visit. She was both informative and extremely helpful in guiding us through the service. We met a variety of friendly and helpful staff, many of which, were even willing to pose for photographs for the easy read guide. As well as A&E we were well received everywhere from Ambulance through to CT scans and X-rays. This was an extremely reassuring visit in terms of assessing the attitude of the service towards people with learning disabilities and we look forward to producing a easy read guide that reflects this. Many thanks for a helpful and informative visit!
