The Annual self-check is a simple form that helps you monitor your condition and look after your wellbeing.
The self-check has been devised by therapists at Cerebral Palsy Scotland working in partnership with community therapists and adults with cerebral palsy.
By completing the self-check every year, you can keep track of your own health and identify areas where there are changes.
Identifying problems and tackling them before they get worse can help you maintain mobility and independence and control pain.
Get specialist input to complete the self-check
You can book a virtual Annual assessment with one of our specialist therapists who will help you to complete the form.
What to do once you have completed the Annual self-check
If you’ve completed the Annual self-check independently, you may have noticed changes in your ability to do something, or feel you’re simply managing pain and not getting to the bottom of it. Maybe you’ve identified a hobby or ambition you would like to achieve.
Here are some ways to take action:
- If you have any concerns about your health talk to your GP. As well as practical help, your GP may also be able to refer you on to a specialist such as a gynaecologist, physiotherapist, other therapist or counsellor.
- Adult services for those with cerebral palsy are not always well signposted and easy to find. If you’d like to search for help, advice and specialist groups available in your area, please contact us. You can also try using our support directories.
- We offer therapy sessions for adults at our Glasgow centre at a subsidised rate, through Helping Hands.
