If you have a learning disability you can get extra support when visiting the doctor. 

To get support you need to join the learning disability register - which could also mean you can have a free Annual Health Check. 

We've created some helpful resources to help you or the people you support get on the learning disability register, including:

  • an easy read guide for people with a learning disability
  • a general supporter's guide
  • a template letter to give to your doctor
  • awareness posters to print off and display.
