5 Health and Social Care Trusts(Population of Northern Ireland 1.8 million)


Structure of Health and Social Care services in Northern Ireland

  • Department of Health, Social Services and Public Safety

  • Public Health Agency / Health and Social Care Board

  • Five Health and Social Care Trusts

  • Local Commissioning Groups

  • Population: 1.8 million people

  • 16 636 people with learning disability (2003 administrative prevalence)

  • 85% of people live at home or with relatives


QUB

  • Queen’s University, School of Nursing and Midwifery, Belfast is the sole provider of pre-registration Learning Disability Nursing in Northern Ireland. (since 1997)

  • Students may gain practice experience within each of the 5 Trusts

  • All Fields will gain Learning Disability Nursing experience through enhancement, spoke opportunities and co-operative learning with significant service user involvement

  • Post-registration learning opportunities are available. University of Ulster offers post-registration opportunities as well.


Practice Experience

  • Although three hospital sites remain,

  • Muckamore Abbey, Antrim

  • Longstone, Armagh

  • Lakeview, Derry

  • They are now mainly refurbished and functioning as Treatment and Assessment Units.

  • Majority of experience gained within Community nursing service within each Trust area & independent,voluntary and charitable establishments across Northern Ireland


Current numbers of students (Learning Disability)

  • 30 commissioned places each September

  • Following a recent recruitment campaign and a move to a September intake, student numbers have increased dramatically!


UU

  • Adult and mental health students at Ulster

  • Opportunities for nursing students to engage with people who have learning disabilities

  • worksheets to demonstrate students work with people with learning disability across year one, two and three

  • Use of Lilliput theatre company


  • ‘Bringing it all back home’


  • The 2010 NMC standards for pre-registration give us an opportunity to bring the competencies required to care for people with a learning disability closer to the family of nursing and place particular emphasis within the other three fields and including midwifery.


  • Shift happens!

  • (and that’s not a spelling mistake)


The challenges ahead?

  • Ensuring Learning Disability nursing has significant presence in other fields particularly in Schools where Learning Disability nursing is not commissioned.

  • Ensuring the experience of families and carers is used to drive up standards

  • shift attitudes and ensure that people with learning disabilities are treated with dignity and respect

  • Joining the patches
