At Basildon and Thurrock University NHS Foundation Trust we are committed to supporting all patients. We serve a diverse community and our services reflect this.

We know that coming to the hospital can be a worrying time for anyone. People with learning disabilities and their carers may need extra information and support to make their hospital experience better.

We want to improve our services for patients with learning disabilities and have a liaison nurse for people with a learning disability who supports patients, carers and the Trust to ensure that people with a learning disability get the best care.
