The hospital passport uses a traffic light system
- The red section is for all essential
information about you. This will alert staff to any important
information or specific requirements you might have or that your
parent/carer may need.
- The amber section is for important information
about your day-to-day activities.
- The green section is for information about
your likes and dislikes.
We ask that you keep your hospital passport up to date. As a
guide we recommend:
- a review every six months
- at your annual health check
The hospital passport can be completed and kept at home in case
of an emergency admission or deterioration in health, or it
can be completed prior to a planned admission when it may also be
used to aid assessment and planning.
