Following interest in our Health Passport for young people leaving care, we have now produced a passport suitable for wider use.

The Health Passport has been designed to be useful for young people or adults accessing a range of different health services:

• Young people leaving the care system
• Young people making the transition from children’s to adult health services
• Students leaving home for the first time
• People who change address frequently
• Anyone who would like a handy reference point for their personal health records
• People travelling abroad

The passport includes space for a NHS number, birth information and several pages which can be completed with details of medical history, regular medication, contact details for GP, dentist and other health professionals, together with a pocket at the back for immunisation records or any other loose-leaf information, with a robust cover and all securely held with an elastic enclosure.

The Health Passports were shortlisted in two categories for the Children and Young People Now awards in November 2012.

The passports are available for individuals or services to purchase at a cost of £10 each (including postage and packaging), with discounts on orders over 50.
