Annual health checks - Learning disabilities

Anyone aged 14 or over who’s on their GP’s learning disability register can have a free annual health check once a year.

You can ask to go on this register if you think you have a learning disability. You do not need to be diagnosed with a learning disability to be on the register.

The learning disability register is different from the register of social care needs managed by local councils.

Check with your GP practice if you or the person you care for is on the register.

To find out more go to the NHS website ….
