The IDD service provides specialist care for those aged over 18 with intellectual disabilities and neurodevelopmental conditions, focusing on those whose needs cannot be met by a mainstream provision. We work to improve the mental and physical wellbeing of our service users, providing treatment and support on less complex needs, specialist time-limited care to those with more complex difficulties, and intensive intervention and care coordination to those with the most severe and complex needs.
Within the IDD Service, we take a professional approach to meeting individual needs and ensuring that people receive the support they require to live a fulfilling life within their local community. Assessment and treatment is delivered by our Community Learning Disability Teams across Nottinghamshire. Where there has been an increase in risk or deterioration and the mental health issues cannot be managed in the community, then assessment and treatment is delivered in our inpatient Unit. About us
