Comprehensive Health Assessment Services
We are committed to improving the health outcomes of people with intellectual disability. We recognise the impact that health and medical issues, adverse experiences and relationships can have on participation, socialisation, behaviour, mental health and overall quality of life.
Many people with an intellectual disability have complex health needs and can have difficulties communicating their needs and recognising the signs and symptoms of health problems. Regular health assessments are an effective way of identifying and managing healthcare needs.
Our consultant rehabilitation physician, Dr Elizabeth Thompson is an experienced practitioner with an interest and training in improving the health needs of people with intellectual disability. Dr Thompson provides comprehensive initial appointments and reports and regular reviews according to the individual’s needs.
