Community Intellectual Disability Nursing Team (CLDT)

We are a group of Specialist Learning Disability Nurses based in the Community Learning Disability Teams (CLDT's)

Our service is for adults (18-65) with a diagnosis of an intellectual disability. We work closely with other health professionals.

Community nurses can help with:

  • emotional and behaviour needs
  • epilepsy
  • health screening
  • understanding your own health needs
  • help with medication
  • healthy eating
  • getting the right help you need from all health services
  • health action plans

We will talk to you about the help you need and how we can support you. This may include:

  • working with your family and support staff
  • giving you advice
  • working with Adult Services and other agencies
  • Working with other health professionals e.g. doctor, hospital, dentist etc

We can give you advice about physical and mental health conditions. We can assess your health needs. We might work with you as an individual, or in a group.

Here is a leaflet about assessments we can offer to you.

We also work with staff so that they can meet your needs. We may go to meetings to talk about how to help you to stay healthy.

All of our sites have disabled access. Limited car parking is available for visitors.

We have produced a video called Making Sense of Adult ADHD to help carers and families after diagnosis.
