In co-production work with local autistic adults and health clinicians we are producing accessible information to help autistic adults and learning disability adults understand what to expect when asked to attend an appointment.
We have made a series of films for those with Type 2 Diabetes to help inform how to manage their diabetes better and to help understand what foods can be eaten, what are best to avoid and what is expected in an annual check
We have made videos which demonstrate what a procedure will be like eg what happens when you have a blood test.
We are currently working on the following projects and will provide links to resources as soon as they are available.
