Eastfield learning disability clinic in Scarborough is holding an open morning on Wednesday 15 February to give people who may access the clinic in future the opportunity to meet staff and find out more about the services they provide.

The clinic, located on Westway in Scarborough is opening its doors to the public between 9.30am and 12pm.

Various talks will be held throughout the morning to share information about some of the services and support available at the clinic. Staff from the speech and language therapy team will also be holding a basic sign language session from 10am to 10.15am, to give people a flavor of some of the activities available.

Throughout the event a range of staff including psychologists, community nurses and speech and language therapists will also be on hand to talk to visitors and answer any questions they might have. A number of service users and carers have also kindly offered their time to speak to people about their experiences of using the services at the clinic  too.

Commenting on the day Lynne Taylor, strategic health facilitation lead for TEWV North Yorkshire learning disability services, said: “At Eastfield Clinic we offer a range of services designed to support the health and wellbeing of people with learning disabilities. This is the first time we have opened our doors in this way and we hope to not only encourage potential future service users to come along and find out more, but would also like to encourage some of our younger clients and their families to also come and meet the team.”
