Learning Disability Population

Annual Health Checks

Patients aged 14 years and over on our Learning Disability register can have an Annual Health Check with our Practice Nurse. A health check is important to make sure you are healthy and that you are getting the right help.

You will be asked about your health including what you eat, if you smoke or drink alcohol, if you have health problems and if you exercise. You can bring someone with you for support. Watch this video to find out more.
