Healthcare

Young people have told us that accessing the correct level of 'joined up' health support is essential to ensuring that they can reach their goals of getting a job, accessing the community and living independently.

It is therefore essential that health professionals are involved in all discussions regarding plans for adulthood.

Your GP

If you are a young person with physical or learning disabilities it is important to think in adavnce of turning 18,  about how you will need your GP to support you to achieve your life goals.

Other Health Services

Some health services you receive as a young person may no longer be available to you once you are over 18. It is important that professionals involved in your care pass on information to your GP and any other health services you may access after 18.

These may include:

NHS Continuing Healthcare

Community learning disability health team

Specialist Learnng Disability Liaison Nurses at St Georges
