Every referral is discussed at a weekly allocations meeting to agree which part of the service would be most suitable to assess the individual, the purpose of the assessment is to identify appropriate support.
- To be eligible for health services an individual will have a Learning Disability (iQ<70) and associated complex health needs which require the input of a specialist Learning Disabiity Service.
