Closing of learning disability service.

My son had a letter today telling him the Nhs learning disability services are temporally closing due to coronavirus. This leaves 1000’s of patients high and dry with only the L.A. to contact in an emergency. Has anyone else received a letter like this to say their area learning disability service are closing?

No, but they are useless anyhow and largely ignore me, as I’m only M’s mother and don’t live with him any more, so they apparently assume that I don’t care for him!!

Yes same here, Charm. Though like BB we don’t receive a support or any service from them either.


I know the exact feeling Bowlingbun. A totally useless service to say the least.

Hiya Melly, I am totally ignored as in personally by these…and he is but I have ensured he gets home care via 117.
