Abstract

People with intellectual disability have an increased variety of health care problems compared with the general population. The transition of care for such people from institutions into the community places them in a primary care system already facing increasing demands for their services. There is a consensus that health screening is at its most useful in identifying functional disabilities. Therefore, an intervention which helps the general practitioner (GP) towards opportunistically checking those areas of health most often deficient in people with intellectual disability would appear of considerable benefit (especially if information directing the GP towards appropriate secondary care services is also provided). The present study was designed to evaluate the impact of such an intervention.
