Once for Wales Health Profile: Improving Access to Healthcare for People with Learning Disabilities

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.
