Hidden Disabilities Sunflower

Posted on September 22nd, 2020

Pembroke Medical Group joins scheme to recognise Hidden Disabilities.

Pembroke Medical Group has recently joined the Sunflower Lanyard Hidden Disabilities Scheme. This scheme, launched at Gatwick Airport in 2016 and is now recognised in many other airports, shops and organisations.  The aim being to increase awareness of hidden disabilities and train staff to recognise when a person may need extra help.

Lanyards are now available at both Pembroke House and Parkhill Surgeries and are free of charge to any patients who have a hidden disability.

All Pembroke staff have been trained to recognise the lanyard and offer extra  support and understanding to the wearer.

Dr Rachel Gaywood, Learning Disability lead for the practice said: “we are really excited to launch this scheme at Pembroke, and aim to make our surgery as welcoming as possible for adults and children who may have a hidden disability. It can be difficult to recognise hidden disabilities and the challenges that people may face, the sunflower lanyard is a visible sign that someone may need some extra understanding and adjustments”.

There is no ‘proof of disability’ required, the lanyard does not entitle the wearer to anything other than recognising that you may need some assistance.
