Supporting people with Learning Disabilities | help us do more

The Royal Orthopaedic Hospital treat a high number of people with Learning Disabilities each year. We’re proud of the care we offer to everyone and we are always keen to make improvements wherever possible. Last year we recruited our first ever Learning Disabilities nurse, Nathan Samuels. He has been hard at work making sure the services we provide meet the needs of people with learning disabilities. Nathan has supported staff to ensure feel supported through every step of their care journey. We want to do more but need your help!

Support specialist training

We know that we can make our care even better. We want to provide specialist training to our staff so that anyone with a Learning Disability who visits our hospital will be cared for in a way which exactly meets their needs. We want to make this training mandatory so that it becomes embedded in the culture of our hospital. We believe that everyone with a Learning Disability deserves amazing care and you can help us achieve this. To provide additional training to one member of staff costs just £5. To train all our frontline staff it would cost just £800, a small cost but worth the huge positive impact! Could you help?
