Scaling a mountain

Martin Bollard Senior lecturer, De Montfort University, Leicester

Attending a conference held by the Royal College of General Practitioners in Coventry last month titled, ‘Acute Primary Care Issues in Patients with Significant Learning Disabilities’, Martin Bollard noted that despite hearing many practical suggestions on how provision could be improved, a mountain of work still lies ahead

T he conference, which built on a similar event held last year in London, aimed to raise awareness of the needs of people with learning disabilities – with specific reference to physical health and epilepsy in general practice. The audience was made up from a range of professionals, including GPs, clinicians and nurses.
