Be Happy. Be healthy. Don't miss out.
About Don't Miss Out
We want a world where people with a learning disability access the very best healthcare available. Yet too many people with a learning disability miss out on this because they're not on the learning disability register.
Anyone of any age and any level of disability can join the learning disability register and get extra support. It's better to join early so that adjustments and support are put in place before a person starts using adult services.
We've worked with NHS England to produce two videos and a series of guides called Don't Miss Out that show the benefits of being on the learning disability register - which could include getting an Annual Health Check.
