Young people with learning disabilities from the Leeds based organisation Paperworks have been working with Fixers and YouthWatch (HealthWatch Leeds) to create a really powerful short video called ‘Doctors, Talk to me’ aimed at doctors, dentists and other health professionals.
One of the young people, Gurdesh (22) explains in their own words why they made the film:
“The video is based on our own experiences of how we sometimes feel when we go to the doctor. We have made the video because doctors don’t always explain things to people with learning disabilities. We want to change that.”
The film aims to improve practice by raising awareness about issues faced by people with learning disabilities
