Christine
Learning disabilities health facilitation team lead

I love the excellent free service the NHS provides and the pure dedication of all the staff. Our team make a difference to the lives of people with learning disabilities by enabling them to have equal access to healthcare. We support our patients to have treatments that they may not have had access to in the past, thereby improving the health outcomes and the quality of their lives. We are able to offer a free programme to support people with learning disabilities to undergo screening and preventative health care.

We are so lucky to have the NHS and we need to celebrate that fact and look forward to the next 70 years. My proudest moment was qualifying as a nurse for people with learning disabilities!
