Learning difficulties bonus for GPs

4th November 2008

Family doctors will get a £100 bonus for carrying out yearly health checks on people with learning difficulties.

GPs have been offered the cash by the government for every consultation after an inquiry found this group of patients were suffering because of poor access to the NHS. Each check up can last 45 minutes and are specifically designed to meet the health needs of people with learning difficulties. Campaigners have welcomed the move and the Department of Health say the checks would help improve services for this group.
