If you have a Learning Disability we will invite you in for an healthcheck appointment every year. Heath checks for people with a Learning Disability were introduced to try to minimise the health inequalities that many people with a Learning Disability face. As well as identifying conditions such as diabetes or heart disease early or reducing people’s risk of developing them in the first place, health Checks can also help to reduce premature mortality.
We will send you a letter with an appointment date and time for you to come and see us.
Here is a poster and a video to explain what happens in the health check appointment:
