Mencap Cymru launched the 'Getting it right in Wales' campaign at the 2010 National Eisteddfod. Getting it right is the campaign for equal healthcare for people with a learning disability. Mencap is campaigning in Wales, England and Northern Ireland for healthcare professionals to sign up to the Getting it right charter.
Mencap Cymru has been working with local health boards in Wales, and so far 6 of the 7 health boards have signed up to the principles of the charter.
We can also offer free learning disability awareness training for healthcare professionals.
Mencap Cymru will be delivering a series of learning disability awareness sessions to healthcare staff in Welsh hospitals between 2012 and 2013.
If you would like more information about Getting it right, or if you work in a health setting and would like free awareness training, please call the Wales Learning Disability Helpline on 0808 808 1111, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
