The Speakeasy NOW Health Checkers team works with the 3 Worcestershire Clinical Commissioning groups and with the Staying Healthy group of Worcestershire’s Learning Disability Partnership Board.
Our Health Checkers are people with learning disabilities who care strongly about the quality of Health Services in Worcestershire.
We know that people with learning disabilities often have poorer health than other people.
We think this is wrong and want to help change this.
We want to make sure that people with learning disabilities have access to good health information and advice.
We want health services that can meet their needs appropriately.
We do this in many different ways:-
Health Checkers receive an expenses payment for the work that they do. They meet every 2 months to plan and discuss their work and to meet with different Health professionals and providers. They are extremely proud of the work they do and the opportunity it gives them to make a difference to their own and other people’s lives.
