The learning disabilities health check scheme is designed to encourage practices to identify all patients aged 14 and over with learning disabilities, to maintain a learning disabilities 'health check' register and offer them an annual health check, which will include producing a health action plan.
The learning disabilities health check scheme operates on a monthly basis. This release contains data for October 2021 only, the seventh month of financial year 2021-22.
The learning disabilities health check scheme is one of a number of GP enhanced services. Enhanced services are voluntary reward programmes that cover primary medical services; one of their main aims is to reduce the burden on secondary care services. Data for other enhanced services are published annually, the latest release of these data is available under related links below.
