I am interested in the provision of ‘reasonable adjustments’ for people with learning disabilities accessing NHS hospitals in England.
The purpose of this enquiry is to test the working of the requirements of NHS trusts to make necessary ‘reasonable adjustments’ for the care of people with learning disabilities as set out in the ‘Learning Disability Access’ criteria in the Monitor Risk Assessment Framework (2015, p. 56) – please see below Monitor pdf for your reference.
I therefore wish to make a request under the Freedom of Information Act for the following information:
1) Please supply the following figures for your trust for the administrative year 2014/2015 in the table included below.
2) Please advise me of website links where I can find any public report(s) of findings of audits of your practices for patients with learning disabilities (Monitor criterion 6; 2015, p. 57) published by your trust since the start of April 2013. These audits are not published on the Trust website.
