People with a learning disability often have poorer physical and mental health than other people. An annual health check can improve people’s health by spotting problems earlier. People with a learning disability can sometimes find it hard to know when they are unwell, or to tell someone about it. A health check once a year gives people time to talk about anything that is worrying them and means they can get used to going to visit the doctor. Anyone over the age of 14 with a learning disability, can have an annual health check. Children would usually see a different doctor until they are 14 years old.

It is recommended that women aged 24 ½ years to 49 years have a smear test every three years and 50 years to 60 years have a smear test every five years. have a smear test every three years. This test looks for any early abnormalities of the cervix or neck of the womb. The best time for a smear test is mid-cycle, this usually means 10 to 14 days after your period has finished. If you are unsure please ask a receptionist or nurse. If you attend too soon after your period or just before your period starts there is a chance that the smear test will be inadequate as there will not be enough cells to sample. Please make an appointment with the Practice Nurse.
Dr Shah can perform minor surgical procedures and steroid injections with the Practice Nurse. Please see the doctor routinely who can then arrange this treatment.
