Jennifer Turedi has joined The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust as lead nurse for Learning Disabilities.

This Mencap Learning Disabilities Week (15 – 21 June) Jennifer is promoting the importance of the voice of those in our community with learning disabilities, in line with Mencap’s theme for the week of ‘Hear my Voice’.

Jennifer said: “My appointment at the Trust and National Learning Disability Week give me a great opportunity to highlight what support is available for people in Rotherham using NHS services.

“I’m very excited to be working with my new colleagues, supporting our patients who have learning disabilities to ensure that they play an active role in the care they receive at our Trust.”

As part of her role Jennifer will work closely with teams on hospital wards, in clinics and in other health care settings to give advice, information and support to those with learning disabilities, their carers and families.

Jennifer will use her expertise to support colleagues to make reasonable adjustments to services, where appropriate, and will ensure that the views of patients with learning disabilities and their carers are taken into account.

During Learning Disabilities Week Jennifer will visit areas across the Trust to promote her newly created role and to introduce herself and the work she does. Jennifer will also work as part of the Trust’s wider safeguarding team to ensure patient safety, compassion and standards high quality care are upheld.
