COVID-19 Grab and Go Guide: Formlogo

I have a Learning Disability or I am Autistic

This guide is really important during the COVID-19 pandemic

The Human Rights Act means that staff in the NHS must respect and protect my human rights
when making decisions about my care even in the time of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Decisions about treatment should be made on an individual basis and in consultation with families,
taking into account my usual health. Decisions about my treatment and resuscitation should not be
made based on my learning disability or autism or the Clinical Frailty Scale.

All decisions must be made in accordance with the principles of the Mental Capacity Act.
