Derriford User Groups
The Derriford User Group (DUG) has been meeting since 2009. It is made up of people with a learning disability who have lived experience of using the hospital as an in or out patient, Learning Disability Liaison Nurses, Primary Care Liaison Nurses and an independent advocate.
We have over 30 members who attend meetings every two months and have a work plan which we write, update and review each year. DUG members regularly help mystery shop wards, deliver training and assist link practitioners design easy read information.
Together this group help to shape, influence and improve services for people with a Learning Disability across the Trust.
