Healthwatch Southend publishes a report on annual GP healthchecks for people with learning disabilities


Healthwatch Southend has published a report focusing on the annual GP health check for people with learning disabilities.

At an event held by Healthwatch Southend in July, it was revealed that only 27% of the people diagnosed with learning disabilities in Southend had received one of these vital check-ups during the previous year.

The report includes links to the presentations that were given by the guest speakers, a summary of the Q&A session, and details of the follow-up work that Healthwatch Southend will be carrying out on this issue in the future.
