We employ three Health Facilitators covering the Hampshire area and one Health Facilitator works within Southampton.

Strategic Health Facilitators in Hampshire and Southampton work with primary and secondary NHS services to facilitate, advocate and ensure that people with Learning Disabilities gain full access to the health care they need. 

The Role of the Health Facilitator

Our Health Facilitators in Hampshire and Southampton are Learning Disability Nurses who have a dedicated role to support professionals by:

  • Providing learning disability awareness training to outside agencies, including sharing information on learning disability services and the support available

  • Providing advice on reasonable adjustments to primary and secondary healthcare services

  • Ensuring that the learning disability population is included on local Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and Public Health (PH) agendas

  • Ensuring that national screening programmes consider the needs of people with a learning disability

  • Developing pathways with generic services that meet the needs of people with a learning disability

  • Providing training on learning disability enhanced services and the delivery of annual health checks for GPs and practice staff

  • Supporting general practices to establish and maintain a Learning Disability Register

  • Discussing and advising on missed health appointments

  • Promoting and sharing useful resources e.g. a Hospital Passport (also know as 'All about me' book) with people with learning disabilities, their families and carers, as well as primary and secondary health services and other agencies
