Helping people with a learning disability to give feedback

Date: Thursday 31 August 2017 – 12:30pm to 1:30pm

NHS England’s Insight and Learning Disability Engagement teams recently published their bite-size guide to helping people with a learning disability to give feedback. To complement this they are running a webinar featuring examples of work the two teams have done.

The webinar will be of particular interest to staff working in Patient Experience and Communication and Engagement roles, and will help them to involve people with learning disabilities to give feedback.

Guest speakers:  Ruth Hudson – Insight Specialist, Joe Penrose – Insight and Feedback Officer, Katie Matthews, Aaron Oxford and Thomas Chalk – Learning Disability Network Managers.
