A hospital passport is a document about you and your health needs. It also has other useful information, such as your interests, likes, dislikes, how you communicate and any reasonable adjustments that you might need.
Please ensure that your information is up to date.
Your Hospital Passport will help to let hospital staff know all about your abilities and needs. This will help them give you better care when you are in hospital.
