Annual health check for young adults with a learning disability

Film about the health check

NHS Hounslow CCG has created a film for people with learning disabilities. The film is about why it is important to have a health check every year and what it will be like. 

People with learning disabilities have poorer health than the general population. This is because people in this group are more likely to have difficulty saying how they feel and seeing a doctor or nurse when they need to.

Research shows that regular health checks for people with learning disabilities can often uncover treatable health conditions.

GPs provide annual health checks for patients with learning disabilities and want to encourage anyone who has a learning disability or who cares for someone with a learning disability to contact their doctor if they haven't had a health check in the past year.
