Healthcare

Young people have told us that accessing the correct level of 'joined up' health support is essential to ensuring that they can reach their goals of getting a job, accessing the community and living independently.

So it is really important that health professionals are involved in all discussions regarding your plans for adulthood.

Your GP If you are a young person with physical or learning disabilities it is important to plan before you are 18,  about how you will need your GP to support you to achieve your life goals.

Easyhealth website   The Easyhealth website offers accessible health information for people of all ages. This is information using easy words with pictures.

Other Health Services Some health services you receive as a young person may no longer be available to you once you are over 18. It is important that professionals involved in your care pass on information about your health to your GP and any other health services you may access after 18.

These may include:

Annual Health Check

NHS Continuing Healthcare

Community learning disability health team

Community Liaison Nurses at St Georges
