The Win Win Alliance is working on a project about coming out of Assessment and Treatment Units (inpatient hospitals) and moving back into the community.
We would like to hear about experiences of people with learning disabilities to see how this can be done in the best way.
Please can you share this questionnaire with any members of your group who have experienced Assessment and Treatment Units and ask if they will share their experiences?
This information will help us find out what works well and what can be improved. It is very important to hear people’s views because our findings will be used in Transforming Care with the Department of Health.
If you would like more information you can speak to Claire or Sarah at CHANGE on: 0113 2426619
Or email us on:
Please return any completed questionnaires by 31st October 2016. You can post them or email them back to us. If you would like paper copies, let us know and we will send them over.
