Health and wellbeing for young people with SEND

Everyone needs to access health services at some point in their life. When you become an adult, some of the health services you used as a child will change. This page explains the different services that are available for adults with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND), including:

  • Mainstream services like your GP
  • Specialist services which are only for people with a learning disability
