Please tell your doctor if you have a learning disability, they can then check if you are on our learning disability register. If you are not, they can arrange for your name to be added. This means you will be offered extra support to make things a bit easier, and more importantly, you could get an Annual Health Check. This information can be shared with other doctors and nurses, so they can make things easier for you too.
