Leaders in health and social care from organisations across Barnsley have given their support to a charity charter committed to ensuring that people with a learning disability get the healthcare they have a right to.

Users of the Barnsley Learning Disability Partnership Board were among the first to receive copies of the ‘All About Me’ document, developed by various agencies in partnership with Mencap.

The charter is designed to be a healthcare passport for people with learning disabilities that records important information for use by medical staff.
