Two extra nurses to work with patients with learning disabilities when they go to hospital in Lincolnshire have been appointed.
Karen Seale and Kerry Pobereznuik have recently started working as learning disability acute liaison nurses for Lincolnshire Community Health Services.
The nurses will ensure hospital patients with learning disabilities are well supported and have their needs met. They will work closely with the patient and their families and carers and existing hospital staff to make sure high quality care is provided.
The nurses join four existing nurses in the trust who support adults with learning disabilities in primary care settings.
Ms Pobereznuik supports patients at Pilgrim Hospital, Boston, and Grantham and District Hospital and Ms Seale is based at Lincoln County Hospital.
