Adults with Learning Disabilities: Performance

In 2009/10, only 5% of people in Lewisham with a known learning disability were recorded as having had a health check meeting the DES specification. Only 3 other English PCTs did worse, performing no health checks at all (See Figure 4). It is important to note that the 2009/10 data shown were collected just as the Lewisham health checks programme was beginning. Forthcoming 2010/11 data are expected to reflect this new activity and show significant improvements.

This figure of 5% having had a healthcheck is also low compared to all other London PCTs (Figure 3). One PCT did no checks, while City and Hackney did the most, with a percentage of 72.9%.
