Patient videos for people with learning disabilities

A package of support is available to help increase the take up of cancer screening by people with learning disabilities: a 20-minute film; easy read materials; and a questionnaire. The project was produced by Barnet Mencap, funded by NCL Cancer Alliance and commissioned by Barnet’s Public Health Team and is intended for patients who live in Barnet, Camden, Islington, Enfield and Haringey. 

The video  Cancer Screenings for People with Learning Disabilities – made for and by patients with learning disabilities – focuses on breast, bowel, and cervical cancers. Aimed at patients, family carers and services which support people with learning disabilities.

The film shows people what cancer is, how screening helps people to get an earlier diagnosis, and how treatment and can save lives. It features a cast with learning disabilities and health professionals and illustrates why people don’t take up the chance of screening and how they can confidently use the screening services. It shows what families and paid staff can do to support people with LD, providing them with information, reassurance, and encouragement.

#hellomynameis

Dr Kate Granger, was a great supporter of NCPC and Dying Matters and she spoke at a number of events. Dr Granger launched the #hellomynameis campaign. It’s not always easy to talk about death or dying but when we don’t talk about what matters it can increase feelings of isolation, loneliness and distress.
