Providing useful information for people with learning disabilities, their carers and all health professionals

Going to the Doctors

Ask your doctor about an annual health check

Make sure you get to know your doctor. They should know that people with learning disabilities can be offered annual health checks.

The GP practice should also make reasonable adjustments such as offering you a longer appointment or visit you at home if you are too worried or anxious about coming to the practice.
