Learning Disability


We are working to make things easier for disabled, deaf and hard of hearing people. We can offer extra support or small changes if you need them.

Please speak to your GP reception team if you require additional assistance or support, when booking or attending an appointment.

The Learning Disability Register is a list of people who have a learning disability at the GP Practice.

Have a look at this short film which explains what the Learning Disability Register is, why it is important and what to do if you think you should be on it.

Everyone with a learning disability can ask for a health check every year at their GP surgery. A health check can help you keep well.

Have a look at this short film which explains what the Annual Health Check is and why it is important you attend.

Your local pharmacy can help with minor illnesses and sell some medicines over the counter.

Have a look at this short film to find out what pharmacies do, and why it should be the first place we go to get advice if it’s not a health emergency.

Reasonable adjustments are small changes that can help people with a learning disability be treated equally. It is important that you tell staff if you need a reasonable adjustment.

Have a look at this short film about the difference it makes when reasonable adjustments are offered.
