The aim of the hospital passport is to assist people with learning disabilities to provide hospital staff with important information about them and their health when they are admitted to hospital.
The hospital passport can be completed and kept at home in case of an emergency admission, deterioration in the individual’s health or can be completed prior to a planned admission when it may also be used to aid assessment and planning.
An adult or child's personal details can be added to the passport by hand or on an electronic version (available below).
For further information about the passports, please contact Brian Evans, Matron for Learning Disability, Autism and complex needs, on 01229 406793 or email@example.com
Things like disabled parking spaces, wheelchair access, hearing loops and accessible toilets all help to make access to our services equal for everyone.
