Learning Disability Annual Health Checks

An Annual Health Check is done by your doctor once a year. Your doctor will take a closer look at how you are doing – making sure you’re healthy.

It is available for most people aged 14 and older with a learning disability at GP surgeries that offer the service.

You don’t need to be ill to get a health check, but you can ask your doctor about anything that is hurting or worrying you.

It is a good way to get to know your doctor better, and for them to find out more about you.
