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 quarterly basis. This release contains data for the fourth quarter of 2019-20.
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.

The contents of this field should be interpreted with caution as NHS Digital are unable to verify the data quality of these data. It should also be noted that where this field is blank it inthird dicates that the practice did not manually enter this figure.
*This page has been edited on 22/07/2020 to amend the 'Learning Disabilities Health Check Scheme, England, 2019-20, Quarter 4 Summary' file. Previously this file contained historic data in the 'Table 1' tab, and data did not correctly match the column titles, e.g. LDHCMI005 data was titled LDHCMI007 . This has now been corrected. We apologise profusely for any inconvenience this has caused.*
