Adults with learning disabilities.
What do they do?
The Community Team for People with Learning Disabilities (CTPLD) is a joint health and social care team that supports people with learning disabilities to lead an independent life as much as possible and have access to health services, so they can be as healthy as possible. The team also supports family and paid carers to continue to support people with learning disabilities and health professionals to help people to access their services.
