Downs Syndrome


Welcome to our section on Down’s syndrome, currently designed for parents and carers of children and young people up to their 19th birthday. We are working towards adding links for transition and adults services.

Whilst LPT offers community health services for the local population, the care of all children with potential or actual disability needs a holistic approach and we have worked with our partner agencies to offer information and links that should be helpful to the families of this group of patients.
