What is the Health Passport?

The Staffordshire and Stoke–on-Trent NHS Health Passport is for anyone with a learning disability, learning difficulty or autism. It is an important document which tells NHS staff about a person’s needs such as,  medication,  personal details and how they like to communicate. A Health Passport should be taken to every healthcare appointment and can help a person get the best care.

Resources for people with a learning disability

As part of the Health Passport campaign, alongside the printed resources you will receive, there are also online copies. The resources include guidance for parents, carers, organisations, healthcare professionals and guidance for people with a learning disability.
