Learning Disabilities annual reviews

People with a learning disability often have poorer physical and mental health than other people. This does not need to be the case. 

It is important that everyone over the age of 14 who is on their doctor's learning disability register has an annual health check. 

An annual health check can help you stay well and finding any problems early.

You do not have to be ill to have a health check – in fact, most people have their annual health check when they are feeling well. 

If you are worried about seeing a doctor, or there is anything they can do to make your appointment better, let the doctor or nurse know.

Our LD Annual Review Process

We ask all our patients with Learning Disabilities to give us some basic information about the best person for us to contact to arrange your annual review, how they would like us to contact them, and any special arrangements we can make so that your review is as easy as possible for you. This is called your ‘learning disability passport’.    

In the month of your birthday we will contact you or your preferred person to arrange your review.     

If possible we will send you a link to an online form to complete some basic information in advance. We will also invite you to book a telephone or face-to-face visit to see your usual GP. However, if this would be a challenge, please let our patient care advisor team know and we can arrange a home visit for you.
