A donation from Simplyhealth means that the DSA can develop a new Annual Health Check Book for adults with Down’s syndrome.
Simplyhealth’s donation will enable the DSA to develop an Annual Health Check Book, launching the finished product in 2014. The Book will provide an accessible way for people to monitor and record their health needs, helping adults with Down’s syndrome to understand and manage their health, as well as improve communication with medical professionals. An online version of the Health Check Book is also being developed, which will be available to GPs in order to give them a better understanding of the conditions that affect people with Down’s syndrome.
Mark Day, Spokesperson for Simplyhealth comments: “With over 20,000 members, and 130 support groups across the country, the Down’s Syndrome Association does a fantastic job reaching out and supporting individuals who have the condition. We are pleased that our donation will have a positive impact on their health and we are delighted to be involved with this project.”
