Learning Disabilities

It is important that everyone over the age of 14 who is on their doctor’s learning disability register has an annual health check.  If you have a Learning Disability ask us about being added to the learning disability register.

An annual health check can help you stay well by talking to a doctor or nurse about your health and finding any problems early, so they can be sorted out.

You do not have to be ill to have a health check – in fact, most people have their annual health check when they are feeling well.

If you are worried about seeing a doctor, or there is anything they can do to make your appointment better, let the doctor or nurse know. They can make changes to help you. These are called reasonable adjustments.

The video and information below will help you understand more about Annual Health Checks and how you can get ready for your appointment.
