Treat me well Campaign
We are campaigning to transform how the NHS treats people with a learning disability in hospital. Will you join us? Find out more at www.mencap.org.uk/treatmewell
If you would like to find out more – and maybe join the Croydon Treat me well group – please come to the Know Your Rights workshop.
It is on Wednesday 12th September at Croydon Mencap’s offices in Thornton Heath. This workshop is open to anyone with a learning disability living in Croydon, who would like to know more about their rights when they are in hospital, and their families and supporters. Please see the poster for details.
There is also a follow up workshop on Wednesday 3rd October for those who want to get directly involved with the Treat me well campaign.
