This paper offers a brief overview of the background to implementing a policy of offering Annual Health Checks (AHCs) to all people with a learning disability/difficulty in the UK. It outlines what has been developed through national policy and then offers an insight into the experiences of four people with learning difficulties in relation to understanding and accessing AHCs. All four people are members of The Lawnmowers Independent Theatre Company (ITC) a company that aims to lay solid foundations for people with learning disabilities to participate fully in their own society, shaping their own environment and controlling their own futures.
