East Kent Hospitals University NHS Foundation NHS Trust (EKHUFT) are pleased to announce the third annual EKHUFT Barbara Mushett Learning Disability Practice Award for an EKHUFT staff member or team that have gone that extra mile to deliver care that is person centred.
Sally Smith – Chief Nurse and Jean – Barbara’s sister are enthusiastic to hear of about care for people with learning disabilities that is adjusted to the persons needs.
Previous winners have developed and used communication tools,
while last years award went to Kings D at William Harvey for the person centred culture and case study examples offered.
This year EKHUFT will give extra consideration to anyone from outside of the organisation that wishes to acknowledge the care and support provided.

This guidance aims to support women with learning disabilities with some of the challenges they face when accessing cervical screening services. It will assist healthcare professionals involved in delivering the screening service, providing a pathway to follow and guidance on broader management of women with learning disabilities within the cervical screening pathway.
You will find attached the Kent & Medway Policy for Cervical Screening for women with Learning Disabilities. The aim of the policy is to provide guidance and describe good practice to ensure that women with learning disabilities have equal rights of access as all other women to NHS Cervical Screening Programme (NHSCSP). Please feel free to download and disseminate this policy to benefit from the guidance within this document which will provide a clear pathway to follow.
