Background to the collection

The NHS Employers organisation and the British Medical Association's General Practitioners Committee (GPC) as part of the 2008 contract changes were imposed to introduce a new Directed Enhanced Service (DES) which provides annual health checks for people with learning disabilities. The DES will continue in 2013/14.

If the local PCT is commissioning a Local Enhanced Scheme that meets the requirement of the DES, with regards to the content of the annual health check and the training component, then annual health checks provided under this scheme can be provided.
