During an autism services focus group, Healthwatch learned that some vulnerable patients had experienced acute anxiety attending hospital visits and that staff were not always aware of the Healthcare Passports. This document, which explains about a person's care needs, has recently been updated and we are supporting Sirona's learning disabilities team with raising awareness.
Coronavirus passports are now available to help those who are especially vulnerable during the pandemic. You can download one below.
Healthcare Passports are used alongside a person’s care plan and are designed to provide additional information on likes and dislikes, information on personal care and the amount of physical contact they like and how they like to be spoken to.
