USW researchers Professor Ruth Northway, Dr Stacey Rees and Dr Edward Oloidi from USW's Unit for Development in Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities worked with Improvement Cymru - part of Public Health Wales - to create the Once for Wales Health Profile.
The health profile provides people with a learning disability with a personalised document that provides an individual health profile to take to appointments and emergency admissions. This key information can then be used by healthcare providers to deliver safe, person-centred healthcare. The Health Profile is implemented across Wales.
