Annual Health check information 14+ -  People with a learning disability often have poorer physical and mental health than other people. This does not need to be the case.

Annual health checks are for adults and young people aged 14 or over with a learning disability.

An annual health check helps you stay well by talking about your health and finding any problems early, so you get the right care.

Children's Continuing Care and Complex Needs

Some children and young people (up to age 18), may have very complex health needs.

These may be the result of:

congenital conditions
long-term or life-limiting conditions
disability
serious illness or injury

Children with such complex needs may need additional health support to that which is routinely available from GP practices, hospitals or in the community.

This additional package of care is called continuing care. The Clinical Commissioning Group, which arranges health services locally, has responsibility for assessing children and young people to see if they need a package of continuing care.

You can find more information about the children and young people’s continuing care national framework, including a guide for young people and parents here

There are two information sheets below which give further information and explain the eligibility criteria, along with a leaflet for parents and carers, which includes contact details. There is also a document showing the remit of the Complex Case Panel. The remit of the Panel includes considering the needs of children and young people who are eligible for either: children's continuing care, non-commissioned pathways of health and care, joint care between CCG and local authority.
