Preparing for Adulthood Being Healthy
Annual Health Check
Children and young people with SEND can sometimes find it hard to know when they are unwell, or to tell someone about it. A health check once a year gives people time to talk about anything that is worrying them and means they can get used to going to visit the GP.
Annual Health checks have been extended to include anyone with learning disabilities aged 14 years or above. Children would usually see a different GP until they are 14 years old.
To have an Annual Health check the GP needs to know the young person has a learning disability.
