Service Description

We are a community team supporting people who have learning disabilities and their families in SW Surrey and North East Hampshire. We work with people who have an impairment of social functioning, linked to an IQ of 70 or below, who may have difficulty managing their health needs independently.

We are a multi-professional team which includes: community nurses, psychiatrists, psychologists and a range of therapists. We undertake specialist secondary health assessments and therapeutic interventions.

We also provide advice and support to enable people with learning disabilities, who often have complex and continuing health needs, to maintain and improve their health wherever possible.

We support people to access primary and secondary health services, where facilitation by a specialist learning disability practitioner is required.

The team can also help people with a learning disability with a range of other specialist services such as health promotion and the development of healthy lifestyles. We work in partnership with other mainstream health services and appropriate specialist services as well as a wide range of other statutory and non statutory agencies.
