What do we do?

We provide a wide range of specialist health services for people with a learning disability who live in Fife, for example, in-patient admission, which cannot be provided by mainstream health services.

We work to help services users reach their true potential by providing the right level of care and support for each individual.


The Service is split into two main areas:

  • Community Learning Disability Teams
  • In-patient Services

In April 2009 NHS Quality Improvement Scotland published the findings from the peer review of NHS Fife's performance against Quality Indicators 2 and 3. To access "Healthcare Services for People with Learning Disabilities - Local Report August 2009" please refer to the bottom of this page under 'publications'.

If you have a question about the Learning Disability Service and you cannot find the answer in the information we have provided, please contact Fife-UHB.LDReferrals@nhs.net
