Help for people with a learning disability

Richard Hammond, Learning Disabilities Co-ordinator, with patient

Everyone at King’s should receive the treatment that is right for them, as part of our commitment to safeguarding patients. We can offer extra help to people who have a learning disability.

For example, we might ask about:

  • the best ways of communicating
  • likes and dislikes
  • changing the ward or clinic environment.

We also have a King's Healthy Passport for people who might need extra help in hospital. We use this to help us understand their needs so we can look after them better. If a patient has filled in a similar passport from a different hospital, we can use that instead.

If you would like to send us your comments and feedback you can also use this Easy-read feedback/complaints form.
