Information for carers

They provide specialist knowledge and expertise to assist people with a learning disability to achieve a positive experience and clinically appropriate outcomes following admission and liaison with acute hospital services.

The liaison nurses are Anna Blair and Tim Harrison. As well as working with patients in the hospital, they work closely with community learning disability teams across Hampshire.
