Learning Disability Friendly Award

Lyndhurst Surgery named Hampshire’s first ‘learning disability friendly’ GP practice

Great news from NHS West Hampshire CCG

A New Forest doctors’ surgery has become the first in Hampshire to be awarded the prestigious title of ‘learning disability friendly practice’.   The accolade recognises Lyndhurst Surgery’s awareness of the needs of people with a learning disability and its ability to adjust the care and services it provides.   One of the main criteria was ensuring people with learning disabilities are offered an annual health check, because this group of people often have poorer health and less awareness of illness than the general population.    The surgery was assessed by a group of inspectors including Will, a service user, who assessed the practice and gave it their seal of approval for:

  • Offering annual health checks to be people with a learning disability
  • Providing a ‘health action plan’ with follow up appointments
  • Ensuring the practice and information is accessible
  • Gaining consents under the Mental Capacity Act
  • Giving people a better experience of a trip to the doctor.

Professor Johnny Lyon-Maris, a GP partner at Lyndhurst Surgery and Locality Clinical Director for NHS West Hampshire CCG, said:   “I am delighted for Lyndhurst Surgery.  This is well deserved and shows how seriously local GPs take the needs of people with a learning disability.   “As a result of this excellent scheme, the NHS is raising awareness of their needs and improving the healthcare they receive.” Noura Hosn, Registered Manager of the Minstead Trust, which supports people with learning disabilities, said:   "Our experience of Lyndhurst Surgery has been positive and great so far. The GPs as well as the nurses are very good and understanding with our residents and tenants.   “Nurses showed flexibility in accommodating annual health checks and adapting their approach to meet individual needs.”   She added: “The secretaries are also helpful and answer our queries and where necessary get back to us with the right information.  I highly rate the Lyndhurst surgery as LD Friendly Practice."
