Changing Places

29th January 2020

Changing Places provide the right equipment, space, safety, and clean environment for people with multiple or profound learning disabilities, or physical disabilities to use the toilet in comfort. This week I received a letter which announced that Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust has been awarded £40,000 to build two Changing Place facilities across two sites. Over £500,000 has been made available to 10 Trusts across England to start work on 16 new facilities, with a further £1.5 million made available to bid for. There is a challenge to access suitable facilities in public spaces and this funding will make a real difference to the thousands of patients and carers who use the Hospital.
