Annual Health Check Survey

The Learning Disability – Annual Health Checks are free health checks provided yearly by the GPs for people with a Learning Disability aged 14 or above. These health checks provide people with a Learning Disability and their carers the opportunity to talk about anything that is worrying them about their health with their GP and may help diagnose a previously unidentified health need. These health checks are not a part of medication review or any other GP appointment. It is the GP’s responsibility to contact people with a Learning Disability aged 14 or above and their carers (where applicable) to schedule an Annual Health Check every year.  

The Strategic Health Facilitation Team (Derbyshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust) is requesting people with a Learning Disability aged 14 or above, their family members/carers and professionals associated with them to complete a short survey on Learning Disability – Annual Health Checks.

The link to the survey is here.

This survey will help better understand the Annual Health Check experiences of people with a Learning Disability, their family members/carers and professionals supporting them e.g., if anyone had an unsatisfactory experience at their Annual Health Check appointment or if they do not know well about Annual Health Checks or haven’t been made aware about them by their GP.

This survey is for People with a Learning Disability aged 14 or above, their family members, carers (both paid and unpaid) and the professionals supporting them e.g., social workers, special school staff, care coordinators, members of Community LD Team, occupational therapists, community nurses, physios, advocates, etc. If you are a carer, please assist the person you support to complete this survey.  The survey would remain open till 10:00 pm, 20th March 2022.
