Dear Heart of Birmingham Teaching 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 Shemaila,

To clarify, does this mean that all GPs in the Heart of Birmingham Teaching PCT carry out annual health checks for people with a learning disability? Rather than 40 of 77 GPs previously specified.

Yours sincerely,

Clare
