Free health checks for young people with LDs

stethoscope iconYoung people with learning disabilities can get free health checks with their GP once they reach the age of 14. Has your son or daughter had theirs?

Cambridgeshire Learning Disability Partnership wants to boost the take-up of health checks. Only about one in three 14-18 year olds who are eligible have had their check and it wants to make sure that rises to three out of four (75%) by 2020.

Every GP in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough is signed up to provide them but parent carers are being asked to make sure their son or daughter is on their local GP’s Learning Disability Register.
