Annual Health Checks during COVID and beyond

Berkshire West CCG has worked with Talkback, West Berkshire Mencap, and Dr Heather Howells, their GP Clinical Lead for Mental Health and learning Disabilities, to produce this video: Annual Health Checks during COVID and beyond.

The video shares information and advice to health professionals about how they should deliver health checks and amplifies the voice of people with learning disabilities about the value of them, in achieving better health and wellbeing outcomes. It offers sound insight into the principles of offering a gold standard health check.

The process was driven, shaped and informed, by the interests and aspirations of individuals with learning disabilities, who can regularly experience health inequalities.
