Learning disability

What is a learning disability?

A learning disability is a reduced intellectual ability and difficulty with everyday activities – for example household tasks, socialising or managing money – which affects someone for their whole life.

Annual Health Check

People with learning disabilities often have poorer physical and mental health than other people. This doesn’t need to be the case.
The Annual Health Check scheme is for adults and young people aged 14 or above with learning disabilities who need more health support and who may otherwise have health conditions that go undetected. Visit  NHS Choices for more information or speak to your GP practice.
