Annual Health Checks

People with a learning disability often have poorer physical and mental health than other people.  It is important that everyone with a learning disability over the age of 14 who is on their doctors learning disability register has an annual health check.

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

You do not have to be ill to have a health check, most people have their annual health check when they are 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 and they can make changes to help you. These are called reasonable adjustments.
