Mencap - easy read guides about how to join the learning disability register and receive a free Annual Health Check

Mencap, the UK's national charity for people with learning disabilities, has produced easy read guides and short films about how to receive extra support by joining the learning disability register.

Going to the doctor is not always easy if you have a learning disability. By joining the learning disability register you can get:

  • extra support when you visit your doctor - including making an appointment
  • support to understand your doctor and your information
  • more time to talk about how you are feeling. 
  • You can receive a free Annual Health Check.
