‘A learning disability is a reduced intellectual ability and difficulty with everyday activities – for example household tasks, socialising or managing money – which affects someone for their whole life.‘
You will be invited in for an Annual Health Check once a year if you are over the age of 14.
At your appointment you will see both a nurse and a doctor on the same day.
You will have a telephone call to book your annual health check and then be sent a questionnaire to fill out and bring to your appointment. You can bring somebody with you if you wish.
The doctor will give you a Health Action Plan to take home with you that will have important information that was discussed at the appointment.
