Video guide to hospital services for learning disability patients

  • Comment

A film has been launched to explain the care and support being provided at Gloucestershire’s two inpatient units for people with learning disabilities.

The 12-minute film – A Journey Through Inpatient Services – is intended to help inform and reassure patients, their relatives and carers before admission to the units, run by 2gether NHS Foundation Trust.

Simon Shorrick, strategic health facilitator at 2gether NHS Foundation Trust, said: ‘The film describes clearly and simply the services and care we provide at our inpatient units. It will give reassurance to patients, their families and their carers.

Actors Rachael Boakes, of Stroud, and Leanne Wallace, of Tetbury, who both have learning disabilities, feature prominently in the film in which they explain the facilities and therapies provided at Westridge, near Stonehouse, and Hollybrook in Stroud.
