There are some things that you can do before and after meeting the learning disability team.
|Make an appointment with your GP for a health check. This is done once a year.|
|The health check will make sure you are healthy. It is your right to have a health check.|
|Take your health action plan with you. A plan to keep you healthy should be written in the health action plan.|
|A health action plan is a personal plan about what you need to do to stay healthy. Take your health action plan to your GP and all your health appointments.|
|It allows you to control your own health – this means you have the responsibility for your health. You and other people in your life will help to make your health action plan and make sure that it happens.|
