The hospital passport is designed to give hospital staff helpful information that isn't only about illness and health. Download your hospital passport.
Your passport can include lists of what you like or dislike. This might be about the amount of physical contact you're ok with, to your favourite type of drink, as well as your interests.
The passport helps all the hospital staff know how to make you feel comfortable.
If you go into hospital, your hospital passport should go with you. The passport tells the doctors and nurses that they should make a copy and put the copy in your hospital notes.
If you are going to be an in-patient, and stay in the hospital overnight, your hospital passport should hang on the end of your bed so that anyone treating you can take a look at it.
