People with learning disabilities are more likely to have a health problem than other people. Some people with learning disabilities do not know what services are there to help them. That is why we have developed a health action plan to enable them to get the services they need to stay well and healthy.

The card holds information such as contact numbers, allergies, or the type of support the person may need if they were in an emergency and had to go to hospital.
