Cabinet Member for Health and Care
“The Covid-19 pandemic has meant we have had to look at different ways of offering our services to adults with a learning disability. It has given us the chance to ensure our service users and their carers can get the services they need by embracing new ways of delivering services within people’s own homes without having to rely on building-based provision.
We now have the opportunity to examine our services and explore the options open to us to ensure our service users and their carers can continue to access the services they need post-pandemic in a way that helps people to lead full and independent lives for as long as possible”.
Julia Jessel, Cabinet member for Health and Care
