Annual health checks for people with a learning disability

Clare made this Freedom of Information request to Solihull Primary Care Trust (PCT)

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was partially successful.

Dear Solihull Primary Care Trust (PCT),

In light of your trusts responsibility for commissioning the existing direct enhanced services payment scheme, I would be grateful if could you provide the following information:

1) The overall total of GP surgeries in your trusts area
2) The overall total of GP surgeries in your trusts area who are currently in receipt of direct enhanced services and are therefore expected to offer annual health checks for people with a learning disability.
3) This number as a percentage of the total number of GP surgeries within your trusts area.
4) The names of those GP surgeries in your trusts area currently in receipt of direct enhanced services and therefore offering annual health checks .
5) Any postcode districts within your trusts region that have no GP surgeries in receipt of direct enhanced services and therefore no GP surgeries offering annual health checks.

I look forward to your response.

With thanks,
Clare Lucas

Dear Solihull Primary Care Trust (PCT),

Thank you for your response. I would be grateful if you could clarify which of the GP practices listed on the NHS choices websites are the 25 offering annual health checks.

Yours faithfully,

Dear Shemaila,

To clarify, does that mean that all GPs within Solihull PCT offer annual health checks for people with a learning disability? Rather than 25 of 31 GPs as specified previously.

Many thanks,

Clare
