Many people with learning disabilities can have a health check every year at their doctor's surgery.
Acute and primary liaison nurse service
Liaison nurses work with hospitals and GP Surgeries to help make sure people with learning disabilities get good care and support.
See the Surrey and Borders Partnership NHS Foundation Trust website for details on the acute and primary liaison nurse service and how to contact them.
Community and specialist health support
Community teams for people with learning disabilities assess health and social needs. This includes planning care and support for adults with learning disabilities and their carers.
See the Surrey and Borders Partnership NHS Foundation Trust for details on Community Teams for People with Learning Disabilities.
Behaviour support service
Surrey and Borders Partnership NHS Foundation Trust has an Intensive Support Service for people with learning disabilities. This works with community and liaison services to offer personalised care and support people.
