Health assessments for care leavers

All looked after children have to have a health assessment every six months. As you get older you are entitled to refuse a health assessment. We would really encourage you to go to your health assessment though as the LAC health nurses have a lot of knowledge and experience that can help.

The purpose of the health assessment is to make sure that all of your health needs are met – not just physical health but emotional and mental health needs as well.
