We provide specialist healthcare to adults and children who have a diagnosed learning disability.
This includes community-based services in Bury, Oldham, Heywood, Middleton and Rochdale, Stockport and Tameside and overnight short breaks and supported living services in Bury.
We are committed to providing evidence-based, safe and effective care that is centred around your individual needs and delivers clear outcomes.
The services we provide include:
- Specialist assessment and support for people with complex and challenging needs
- Support to reduce and overcome the health inequalities that can be experienced by people with learning disabilities
- Help with access a range of services to keep you healthy
We work closely with a range of partners, including other NHS organisations, social care, GPs, voluntary sector and user-led organisations.
We also work with other health professionals across Pennine Care to ensure services are accessible for people with a learning disability and that we provide whole person care.
The national transforming care programme aims to improve services for people with learning disabilities and/or autism, who display behaviour that challenges.
This includes people with a mental health condition.
It focuses on five key areas of development:
- Empowering individuals
- Right care, right place
