Treat Me Right! expands training to hospital trusts across North West London

Certitude is delighted to be expanding its well known and respected Treat Me Right! project during 2017-18 to deliver autism and learning disability awareness training to 1200 health and social care staff across 6 hospital trusts in North West London.

Treat Me Right! began in 2008 as a co-produced project, training hospital staff on the support needs of people with learning disabilities when using hospital services and the reasonable adjustments that could improve the quality of healthcare they receive.

In the last few years, Treat Me Right! has expanded its remit to include training for GPs, student midwives and social workers as well as other primary health care professionals.

As part of the North West London Transforming Care Programme and supported by funding from Health Education England, Treat Me Right! will work with Imperial Hospital, Chelsea and Westminster Hospital, London North West Healthcare, Hillingdon Hospital Trust, The Royal Marsden and The Royal Brompton hospitals to increase awareness of the specific support needs that people with autism and learning disabilities can have and the reasonable adjustments that they have the right to expect.
