GP Annual Health Checks for patients with learning disabilities

If you or someone you know has a learning disability, it is important for your GP to know.

Health checks are effective in identifying unmet needs in people with learning disabilities, this can include cancer, heart disease and dementia, and minor health conditions, such as impacted ear wax.

Health checks are also an effective way to address identified health needs such as vaccinations, blood tests, breast and testicular screening, dental review and vision and hearing assessment

Don't miss out. Let the GP know.
