Mencap have begun a new campaign, called ‘Treat Me Well’, into hospital care for young people with a Learning Disability and the move from children’s services to adult services.
Moving from children’s services to adult services is called transition. Adult services are different from children’s services and you may have more choices on the care you receive and the decisions that you are able to make.
Mencap have produced a short film with Bradford People First that shows the differences you can expect in hospital as a young adult. It is aimed at young people with a learning disability and can be shared with family, friends, carers and hospital staff.
