Foreword by the Modernising Learning Disabilities Nursing Review Co-production Steering Group
We are the Co-production Steering Group for the UK Modernising Learning Disabilities Nursing Review and we are people with learning disabilities, people with autism and family carers. We all have experience of learning disabilities nursing and want to see it improve and develop. This should be consistent across the UK.
It has been enjoyable working on this and putting forward our ideas. We can see our ideas in the report but this is only the first step. The implementation stage will be even more important as this will lead to the goal of good outcomes for people. We want to see people with learning disabilities, people with autism and family carers meaningfully involved throughout all this work.
Our hopes are that the recommendations will develop a better future of nursing care for people with learning disabilities throughout their lifespan. People are complex and learning disabilities nurses need to find accessible ways to share information and work with people with learning disabilities to ensure good quality holistic health care. People are the experts on their life, health and care.
We want to see decision-makers buying into these recommendations and committing to budgeting to take them forward. As a group, we value the report and feel that it is important that the recommendations are carried out.
