On 18th July over 200 people, most of them people with learning disabilities, braved the rain to come to Wolverhampton's Big Health Day to share their experiences of health services. Andy Howell, MP in the People's Parliament chaired the day alongside Wendy Ewins, Joint Commissioner.
All of the experiences and issues will be fed into Wolverhampton's Learning Disability Health Self-Assessment, which will be sent to the Strategic Health Authority in September. This self-assessment is a real opportunity to improve health care for people with learning disabilities. The main areas identified as needing improvements will be fed into the People's Parliament so it can monitor what real change happens for people with learning disabilities across the City.
