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.

We have an exciting new plan for people with learning disabilities, their families and carers.

This is our plan for 2020 to 2025 to make learning disability services better:

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.
