Sheffield Children's Hospital have developed a communication and health passport. This is to support children and young people to communicate their needs.
You can download a copy by clicking here.
This passport provides staff with all the important information about your child’s support needs:
- about their healthcare
- about their learning disability
- how they prefer to communicate
- how to make things easier for them when in hospital
When you have completed the passport for your child, you can bring it with you when you come to the Sheffield Children’s Hospital. Please give the passport to the nurse looking after your child. This will help them to understand what you need.
You can also e-mail a copy to our learning disability lead nurse who will upload the form into your child’s patient records. The e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
