Annual Health Checks for People with a Learning Disability

In these extremely challenging times, it is more important than ever that we help people with a learning disability to stay healthy and well. Lincolnshire County Council and NHS Lincolnshire are encouraging people with a learning disability to contact their GP practice to arrange their Annual Health Check and to check they are recorded as having a learning disability on their GP records. This means the doctor will prioritise their health check each year and contact them to arrange it every year.

The Annual Health Check will help people to access the health and wellbeing services they need. This may also be a good chance to ask about flu jabs or the Covid-19 vaccine if the person hasn't already been contacted.  There is a lot of information available in our download section at the bottom of the page including easy read guides and how to prepare for the health check.

Safeguarding in Lincolnshire

If someone you know in Lincolnshire is being abused or you think they might be, please contact the safeguarding team at Lincolnshire. It's better to be on the safe side. 

If you believe that a child or adult may be the victim of neglect, abuse or cruelty please call:

  • Adults' Safeguarding - 01522 782155 (Monday to Friday, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.) or

You do not need to know everything about the situation. You may just be worried or feel that something is not right. 

If you believe a crime has been committed and there is an immediate risk of danger, call the police on 999 or 112.  If there is no immediate danger, call the police on 101.

Whistleblowing in Lincolnshire

What is Whistleblowing?

Whistleblowing is described as the act of reporting unethical activity or misconduct within private, public or third-sector companies. Some everyday activities that come under whistleblowing are bullying, fraud, corruption, discrimination and health and safety violations.

You can raise your concern at any time about an incident that happened in the past, is happening now or you believe will happen in the near future.
