If you would like a large print version of this information and questionnaire, please contact Katherine Lewis 01955 605128

The health service in Caithness (Caithness Local Health Care Co-operative) in partnership with Highland Council, the voluntary sector, service users and carers has developed service priorities for people with learning disabilities in Caithness. These priorities reflect the views of service users, carers and professionals identified at the workshop on 17th June 2003 at the Weigh Inn, Thurso.

We would now like to consult with you to ensure that the solutions to the priorities reflect your needs. The three priorities are:

Short breaks for people with learning disabilities

Specialist multi-agency learning disability support teams

Specialist, dedicated workers for children, young people and adults to be identified within teams across services

Please return the completed questionnaire by 31st October 2003 to:

The information you give us will be used only for the purposes of the review. We do not ask for your name, therefore all information is anonymous. Whilst we would encourage you to fill in this questionnaire or as much of it as you want it is very much your decision. However, we hope that as many people as possible will return completed questionnaires. Please be assured that filling it in will not affect the standard of care you or the person you care for receive.

Please contact, Katherine Lewis, Caithness Redesign Facilitator, Health Development Team, Trust Wing, Riverside Medical Practice, Wick, Caithness, Tel.01955 605128, email Katherine.Lewis@hpct.scot.nhs.uk
