Can you help?

did not attend captureI am making a questionnaire about Annual Health Checks for people with learning disabilities.

It is to send to people who do not go to their health check. It is to try and find out why they did not go.

If you are a person with a learning disability I would like your help. Can you please have a look at the questionnaire?
