Good health and wellbeing

Good Health Panel

Being a young adult, parent, or carer of a child with special needs can be both amazing and sometimes challenging.

Everyone needs a little bit of extra support at some point in their lives, and there is health and wellbeing support available for you and your family.

In addition to the information and advice below, Plymouth has an Early Help and SEND Advice Line. You can book a conversation with a Family Support Worker to discuss worries or questions.  Just call 01752 668000, or email


Annual health checks if you have special educational needs or disabilities

Everyone over the age of 14 who is on their doctor's learning disability register should have an annual health check.

Health transitions

As children with special educational needs (SEN) and disabilities approach adulthood, they face a significant change - moving from children's healthcare to adult healthcare. This process, known as health transitions, is important for making sure these individuals continue to receive the care they need as they grow older.

Care, Education and Treatment Reviews (CETRs)
