‘Clinical procedures’ is a term used to describe certain processes or procedures which an individual with complex health needs may require, either as part of their routine care or within an expected emergency situation in order to maintain their optimal health or sustain their life. Many adults with profound and multiple learning disabilities (PMLD) are being denied services or access to certain opportunities and activities, because some agencies are preventing their staff from undertaking clinical procedures or using medical devices to sustain or support life. This guide will help local areas ensure the inclusion of people with PMLD. It focuses on what ‘good’ looks like and what needs to be in place to meet the needs of people with PMLD.
