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.
