Free annual health checks

For those aged 14 years or older with a learning disability.

If you are 14 years old or older and have a learning disability you are entitled to have a free annual health check at your GP surgery.

To be entitled to a learning disability annual health check, you need to be on your GP surgery’s Learning Disability Register.

If you think you have a learning disability, but aren’t sure that you are on the Learning Disability Register, you can ask your doctor or practice nurse about this.

If you have a learning disability it is important that you are on the Learning Disability Register so you can get extra support around your health needs.

An annual health check is important so you can talk about your health and ways to stay healthy.

You don’t have to be ill to attend an annual health check.

It is a great way for you to get to know your doctor/nurse and for them to get to know you.

If you are on the Learning Disability Register, your GP surgery should invite you for your health check, but if they haven’t you can contact them to ask about this.

You can find out more information about what the health check involves by looking at this website:

There are Learning Disability Primary Care Liaison Nurses in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire who you can contact to ask questions about your annual health check and the Learning Disability Register. You can call them on 0115 876 0138.
