GP Learning Disability Register

People with a learning disability can get extra support from their GP and other health services by being on the GP Learning Disability Register. The GP Learning Disability Register is an all age list of people registered at that GP Practice who have a learning disability. The register then alerts the GP they have a learning disability so they can put the appropriate support in place for that person and invite them to the relevant check-ups they are entitled too.

By informing the GP Practice a person has a learning disability it means they can provide better support for that person. They can also share the information with other health professionals who may need to support them so they can also provide the reasonable adjustments and support they might need.

It’s really important to ensure your child or young person with a learning disability is on the register, even if they are mainly cared for by the Paediatrician. This is because it allows the GP Practice to know the child has a learning disability at the earliest opportunity and to build a relationship with the child or young person before they transition in to adult services. It also means they can access their Annual Health Check age 14+, Dr Jim Gordon explains why it is important here. You can find out if your child or young person is on the register by contact your GP, if they aren’t on please ask them to add them to it.

Mencap are running a campaign called Don’t Miss Out about making sure people check they are on the GP Learning Disability Register. A range of resources and more information about this can be found here.

You can watch this short film about Annual Health Checks and why they are important here.

More information about Annual Health Checks can be found on the NHS England website here.
