Reduced written tasks included various interactive and fun exercises to get participants to talk about their health and wellbeing increased facilitators to 1:3 participants, giving participants more attention and support. Exercise includes group work, walkabouts in the neighbourhood and taking photographs, making collages, practical cooking and eating healthy meals The learning programme is being piloted with a group of people What the intended outcomes /actual outcomes are -For more people with learning disability to engage in health conversations and health and wellbeing activities. -Building confidence and self awareness. -Building social skills specifically on communicating and exercising personal choices.
Example of a reasonable adjustment accessible job description of Member of the Peoples Parliament for Health (the MPP)
What might a Health Member of the Peoples Parliament Do? To help us check what is good and bad in health services Get peoples ideas about what needs to improve To make sure that we give people with learning disability chance to talk about health, and all the work that is happening Be a member of the Improving Health Group ( partnership board subgroup) and set up a health group themselves
What health services? Primary Care Health services that happen in local clinics, and peoples own homes. It also means services such as local doctors (GPs), dentists, opticians and district nurses. Hospital services – This is services at the Hallamshire Hospital, Northern General Hospital, Western Park, or mental health hospital services. It would include when people visit hospital just for the day, or when people need to stay in hospital for longer.
What will you talk to people about? All the things that need to be good in health services like: Doctors Nurses Hospital staff Dentists Pharmacists or chemists Therapists Opticians
Four big things to improve in the NHS: 1. Make sure people who lived in long stay hospitals have all moved. 2. Make sure people with learning disabilities as good health services as everyone else. 3.Make sure people are safe in health services 4.Make sure we are improving health services like Valuing People Now says we should
