Learning Disabilities Primary Care Liaison Team

The Learning Disabilities Primary Care Liaison Team is a team of learning disability nurses who work across Primary Care. Primary Care includes services such as GP practices and pharmacies.

The team supports adults with learning disabilities to understand, maintain and improve their health. We also work with carers and professionals to reduce health inequalities.

Part of the team’s work is to improve access to services for people with a learning disability. We work with patients, carers and professionals to promote understanding. We also help people with learning disabilities to find and access the right services for them.

We also work with professionals to raise awareness of the health issues people with learning disabilities can face.

The service mainly supports adults over 18, but we also support young people aged 14 and over who are registered with a Nottingham City GP and who have a learning disability with regard to their transition to adult services and access to an annual health check.
