We’re pleased to let everyone know that print copies of Options’ NHS funded ‘5 Steps to Health’ guides are now available. We also have accessible, Easy Read copies of the guides available too.
The 5 Steps to Health booklet is a guide to supporting good health for people with learning disabilities. The booklet contains a lot of useful information on:
- Learning Disability Annual Health Checks and health action plans
- Reasonable adjustments
- Hospital passports
- Sepsis and Pneumonia
- The Mental Capacity Act
The guides are for people with learning disabilities and their friends and families, as well as support workers. We believe that the information in the guides can make a real difference to the health of people with learning disabilities, and the health care they receive.
We’re making copies of our 5 Steps to Health guides available for free to organisations that support people with learning disabilities, as well as other health and social care organisations. You are welcome to forward this email to anyone who may find it useful.
To request copies of the booklets, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and specify the qualities of guides and Easy Read guides you require.
Digital versions of the guides can also be viewed at:
Best wishes, Christine
