Right for Everyone Programme: GP practice visits
Between autumn 2015 and summer 2017, we are carrying out Enter and View visits by people with learning disabilities, their support workers and family carers, to a range of community health services.
The project began with pilot visits to six healthy living pharmacies in spring 2015 and four GP practices in autumn 2015.
The Right for Everyone programme is a partnership initiative with the Lambeth Learning Disability Assembly and Lambeth Mencap, supported by Lambeth Clinical Commissioning Group. The project will involve visits to healthy living pharmacies, GP practices, dentists, opticians and foot clinics, alongside Assembly events and training for practitioners to share learning from the visits.
Why hospital discharge?
This project is part of our ongoing work with learning disabled people in Lambeth and contributes to one of our piority areas of looking at access to community based services and their impact. The project aims to address the particular inequalities experienced by people with learning disabilities. But we hope the programme will help drive improvements to make services 'right for everyone'.
The visits assess
- how accessible the service is
- the quality of information and advice provided for dealing with long-term conditions
- how kind the service is.
Our team of authorised visitors for this programme are listed on the Enter and View page.
