Improving identification of people with a learning disability

The NHS long-term plan commits to improve health care for people with a learning disability. NHS England and Improvement has published guidance for practices to ensure they have an accurate and complete register of patients with a learning disability.

Practices should ensure that eligible patients are offered a flu vaccination and flagged for an annual health check. A template easy read letter to invite people for a learning disability for a flu vaccine is also available.
